A four-week series offered twice a year for those coping with grief and loss. Grief can be a pathway to growth, not in a way that justifies the pain or loss, but in a way that pays homage to our loss. No one need carry grief alone either; knowing that others understand how we feel can lessen the hurt and strengthen the hope. Led by The Reverend Lisa Saunders.
Our next series will be held on Wednesdays, September 20 - October 11. Daytime (1:00 - 2:15 PM) and evening (7:00 - 8:15 PM) groups are available. Contact The Reverend Lisa Saunders at 704-714-6952 or to sign up or learn more.
