Special Ministry Groups
Life During Grief
Grief is a journey that is taken a step at a time. Each participant will receive a notebook with a variety of “tips for the journey”. Grief is a journey and each journey is unique. Ample opportunity is given for small group discussion and reflection. Together we discover how to live during our grief in a healthy way. Each topic presented will be viewed through the lens of the Bible and Christian principles. Although the focus of the workshop is primarily on the loss of a loved one (spouse, parent, child, etc.), the principles and helps for the journey are applicable to divorce, loss of a friendship, a business/career, a home, one’s health, etc.
This workshop will address each of these issues and more:
- I have suffered a significant loss in my life
- I am having difficulty resolving my grief by myself.
- Even though I have
experienced apast loss, I want to fully live the rest of my life.
About our facilitator: Bob Brown has experienced his own deep personal loss and will lead this 8-wk series in a workshop format that gives permission for personal stories to be shared.
Perhaps the greatest comfort of all is the knowledge that God is with us and we do not grieve alone!
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, do not fear; I will help you." – Isaiah 41:13

MOPS exists to encourage, equip, and develop every mother of preschoolers to realize her potential as a woman, mother, and leader in the name of Jesus Christ.
Moms of children, infant through kindergarten, meet with other moms as well as mentor moms who have had some of the same experiences. As a group, moms have the opportunity to discuss concerns and ask questions all while knowing that their children are being cared for onsite by loving and caring childcare volunteers.
MOPS is a great way to make new friends and connect with other moms.
MOPS meets September-May on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 9-11am in the Fireside Room.
