GriefShare Classes – Sept/Nov 2018

Are you conflicted because you are grieving the passing of a loved one, and yet have been told to get over your grief and back to being “normal”?  With grief there is no “normal,” but there is a “new normal.”  If grief has disrupted your life, consider attending GriefShare – an 11-week grief support group.  Beginning in September, the class meetson Wednesdays from 1pm to 2:30pm in Room 4 of the Education Building.  For more information or to register ($15), contact Pastor Jean or register online here.
