South Nashville church hosts “Chips N’ Chatter” an event designed to provide a comfortable environment to discuss the hard topic of domestic violence

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Nov. 19, 2019) – Watson Grove Missionary Baptist Church (The Grove) will host “Chips N’ Chatter” an intimate conversation about domestic violence awareness, in a comfortable environment, led by author Kimberly “Brownie” Vaughn on Friday, November 22nd at The Grove (1415 Horton Ave. Nashville, TN. 37212). This event for women places an emphasis on defining healthy relationships, evaluating self-esteem and self-worth, and how these respectively impact relationships. Vaughn has a unique process to cultivate spaces where women enjoy a program filled with conversation, music and healing. The evening will end with prayer, anointing and a declaration of confidence.    

“We have a unique outreach opportunity to open up the floor for women of the church and nurture the concept of a healthy relationship,” said  Congregational Care ministry leader, Rev. Della Bacote. “Domestic violence is a very touchy subject even outside of the church walls, so we hope that this intimate setting will offer clarity through Christ in dealing with domestic violence.”

“Chips N’ Chatter” is an opportunity for women to become more self-aware and vigilant of the “red flags” or signs of a possibly abusive relationship that could escalate to a domestic violence situation. Although October is generally touted as Domestic Violence Awareness month, what we see heading into the holiday season is that the number of cases typically do not increase, but reported cases become more violent, based on several studies.

Conversations like “Chips N’ Chatter” embrace The Grove’s Core Value of “Relationship.” While the subject is widely avoided in the faith-based community, The Grove’s Congregational Care ministry makes an intentional effort to provide a safe platform for Christians to discuss topics like Domestic Violence Awareness and offer peace of mind to those who attend.
