Benton Church of the Nazarene
Griefshare Program Offered to the Local Community Saline County members who have experienced the death of a family member or friend are invited to register for the Griefshare program held at Benton Church of the Nazarene. This nondenominational program features Christ-centered, biblical teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one.
The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was seen on the DVD. Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort, and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage as a slave to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
Griefshare will be held every Thursday for 13 weeks from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the church, located at 1203 W. Sevier St. in Benton. First session begins April 18 and runs through July 11. To register or for questions, call Pastor Brady Lane at 501-860-2830 by April 11. Child care is not available at this time.
