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.
