Experience mercy from God and from each other
Humans weren't made to live alone. Yet so many do. Jesus came to welcome people into true relationship with God and with other people. He came to build a family. Have you found yours?
From Mourning to Joy
Losing a loved one is an experience no one looks forward too, but we all know we will experience some day. When it comes, especially the first time, it can affect us in ways we don't expect. It can rock our very foundational beliefs in God, our family, our friends, our world and even ourselves.
GriefShare is a biblically based Grief Support Group that meets for 13 weeks. Each week participants watch a video which is followed by discussion. A workbook is provided that follows the outline of the video for taking notes, followed by some exercises to do during the week between sessions with thoughtful questions for processing your grief.
Everyone griefs differently due to the uniqueness of the relationship each had with the loved one who is now gone. So sometimes, it becomes difficult to express your grief with other family members due to the dynamics of the various relationships. GriefShare is a safe place to share your pain, your emotions, and get practical advice for issues you may be dealing with, and hear how others are coping with their pain. Participants learn that there is hope for the future, that the pain will subside in time. They learn that grief is a journey from a place of mourning to finding joy again.
Grieving is a normal part of life. It is the price we pay for loving someone. If you are grieving or know someone who is, please consider coming to our upcoming session.
