We believe that when we experience grief we enter into a time of great potential for personal growth. These crises can become dangerous opportunities for us to receive comfort and encouragement as we step into new understandings and faith. Each one's journey through the Valley of the Shadow is unique. The journey is best when made with others. Our Grief Ministry Coordinator, Peggy Beck, accompanies the pastor when meeting with the family, represents the church in hosting the funeral/memorial service, coordinates the involvement of other parishioners for family meals, home watch, greeters/ushers, reception team, etc.
We are pleased to offer the GriefShare seminar and support group again in 2023. If you are suffering the loss a loved one, please consider joining our group. GriefShare is facilitated by a friendly, caring group of people here to support you through your grief journey. We invite you to join us for this 13 week seminar series offering encouragement and practical steps to assist you during the grieving process. We will meet Thursday afternoons 1:30-3:15 starting January 26 in the Library and on Zoom!
Note: no sessions February 23rd and April 13th.
