Winter GriefShare Group

Sundays: Jan 20–Apr 14, 2018
5:00-6:30 pm, Meeting Space 2 (LL)

Grief is not an enemy or a sign of weakness. It is a sign of being human. Grief is the cost of loving someone.

We welcome anyone who has lost a loved one to join us for GriefShare. We hope our group discussions and videos will provide you with the comfort and hope and assurance of Christ's resurrection during the difficult days. The winter months can be especially hard, but we want you to know we are here for you.

Please register online or contact Dylan Teut for more information, 402-643-7483.
Cost is $15.00 for a workbook.  You may pay online here or bring to first class.
