Groups are an amazing way to get through difficult times in our lives! I wanted to let you know that we will be starting up our GriefShare group again at the end of the month. If you've been thinking about getting into a group, this is an amazing one to get involved in.
Grief is an ongoing journey, and GriefShare is an amazing 13 week study that is a wonderful way to be around people who will help you through this time in your life.
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 about what was viewed.
Past participants have related how helpful the information and followup discussions were to them. Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you!
Confidentiality is very much a part of this program. 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 that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future~
We will meet each Sunday at 9:00 in the True North Conference Room. Meetings will begin on Sunday, August 25th. Childcare is available.
Please consider joining us ~ we would love to have you! If you decide to join, just let me know, and I will add you to our group.
If there is anything else we can be doing for you and your family, please let me know.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
