CFC Handmaids of the Lord (HOLD) aims to provide a Christian support environment for single mature women, widows, separated or divorced, single parents, wives of overseas workers, and those whose husbands are incapacitated or in prison. HOLD’s formation program teaches that
- the woman is a beautiful creation of God, chosen for greatness, and designed for excellence;
- while loneliness, rejection, and fear in their lives are real, they have a God who loves them and cares for them through community;
- to fully experience a life of joy and fulfilment, they need to heal, forgive, and decide to be happy and productive; and
- by serving other women whose circumstances are similar to theirs, they thank God and gain empowerment.
