Welcome,

If you are need of healing, join us...by the way, why do Christians need healing?

The short answer to that is this, GRIEF IS THE PRICE WE PAY FOR HAVING LOVED. AND WHEN IT IS PERSONAL, IT IS PERSONAL.

In over five years of leading grief support, we have had in attendance pastors, college counseling professors, Christian hospice chaplains have attended - for their own personal losses (being in attendance with the group for a year or more).

Core Program
1-13 weeks, you can START during ANY week.

FYI - attendees are encouraged to stay with the group for multiple 13 week sessions, a year and even more of attendance (because grief is typically a multi-year process). So if your loss was during the middle of our thirteen week session or you discovered our group in the middle of our sessions and you are ready 'now' then please come.

Week 14 is Special Meeting come during the thirteen weeks to and find out why.

Feeling Anxiety about Coming?
Attend a meeting - just show up and observe. (Actually we encourage three sessions for an evaluation if you are not sure, do to the unique dynamics of each group and session). The only requirement for attendance is that you are experiencing grief, loss, pain from the loss, separation /death of a loved one.

Our Typical Session
* First we start with a hot MEAL, COME as early as 5:30pm to eat.
* A MUSIC video or two while you eat that FOCUSES on Grief, AND then a MUSIC video that focuses on the OTHER SIDE of Grief.
(i.e. Tell Your Heart to Beat Again https://freeccm.com/2016/08/09/behind-the-song-danny-gokey-shares-the-heart-behind-his-single-tell-your-heart-to-beat-again/ and Overwhelmed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiGb14tTaH4 ).
* Brief Check-In - "how have you been this last week?" Remember, if you choose to share, it is with those with similar experiences, that understand (when others you share with my not).
* A review of Workbook / HOMEWORK from the previous week (don't worry if you didn't or couldn't do it , come anyway);
* Video Presentation of grief topics about 35-45 min.; comments, discussion time available afterwards, when time permits.

Finances
* If the loss have left you financially burdened, simply request a free workbook, also daycare is $5 a night, that fee can be waived if you can't afford it.

The church is informal, the group is also informal and relaxed. Come as you are, no makeup...come. Did feel like dressing up to go out in public...come!
