GriefShare 



Grief is as individual as a snowflake!
 GriefShare is a support group that meets with direction and purpose to learn to walk the journey of grief and be supported along the way.
It is where grieving people find healing and hope. If you have experienced a loss or would like to learn to help others facing grief, then this is a great group for you.
In Matthew 11:28, it says "Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

To help you face these challenges and move forward to rebuild your life, come and share with others who are making the same journey. Led by Heidi Tarr.
Our next session of GriefShare will begin Tuesday, August 10.  
For more information email Debbie Kreiger, [email protected].
