ON­GO­ING EVENTS

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.

Cost is $10 to pay for a work­book. Schol­ar­ships are available.

Homeschool Hour is set from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. each Wed­nes­day at Herzfeld Li­brary in Ben­ton. Chil­dren ages 6 and older are in­vited to join every Wed­nes­day to hang out with other home­schooled kids and com­plete a different ac­tiv­ity every week. Mak­erspace, ge­og­ra­phy, cook­ing, en­gi­neer­ing and more, are topics.

Mak­ing It Wed­nes­day will be held from 1 to 2:30 p.m. each Wed­nes­day at Herzfeld Li­brary in Ben­ton. Pa­trons ages 18 and older can take an af­ter­noon craft break from their week each Wed­nes­day. A new fea­ture project will be pre­sented each week, but guests are free to express them­selves by go­ing off-project if that is where the week goes. Var­i­ous crafts and tech­niques will be used dur­ing the fea­ture project. All projects will be ap­pro­pri­ate for be­gin­ners with op­tions to add more ad­vanced tech­niques for the more ex­pe­ri­enced crafter.
