We will be offering a grief support program beginning July 30 in the afternoon from 1-3 pm. This program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one.
The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion. Past participants related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them.
Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one's death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. These sessions will help you learn about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
Registration fee is $20.00 which covers the cost of the workbook

Join us at one of these services of prayer and imposition of ashes as we begin the 40 Day Journey of Lent. In this service we recognize life as a precious gift from God. We recognize our mortality, repent of our sins, and return to our loving God. We may make resolutions and commit to change our lives over the next forty days so that we might be more like Christ
