Grief Recovery

griefrecoverywebOur Grief Recovery ministry is a new program that will focus on providing support to those that have suffered a loss.

Grief is a natural response to loss. It is the emotional suffering one feels when something or someone the individual loves is taken away. Grief is a reaction to any loss. The grief associated with death is most familiar, but individuals grieve in connection with a variety of losses throughout their lives, such as unemployment, ill health or the end of a relationship.

Our goal is to provide a support network and programs designed to help and educate those that are grieving while reinforcing that through prayer: "the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:7
