Walking the Mourner's Path

Sundays 12:30-2:00pm Oct 29 - Dec 17
Room 215

Walking the Mourner's Path is an 8-week grief group for anyone who has suffered a significant loss and would like to process it in a group setting. Loss due to death is always difficult. The support group invites those who have suffered the loss of a loved one to come into God’s loving presence, to process, heal and be loved. While the Mourner’s Path is a non-denominational ministry, it is distinct from many other bereavement programs in that it is Christ-centered, scripturally and spiritually based. Walking the Mourner’s Path is not group therapy but is spiritually directed.
