While We’re Waiting – Bereaved Parent’s Support Group
January 17, 2022
Anyone who has lost a child is welcome to come. You are welcome if your child has been in Heaven for thirty days or for thirty years. You are welcome if your child was stillborn and never took a single breath, or if your child lived to be an adult and had a family of his or her own. come, knowing you will be surrounded by people who care, who understand, and who will pray for you. This will be a safe place, a place where we can discuss our struggles, knowing we will not be judged, because every one of us has been there at one time or another. We will also share our victories, and rejoice with each other as we move along the road toward healing.
All of our support groups are facilitated by parents who have experienced the death of a child. None of us has any training in grief counseling, and attending this group should not be viewed as a substitute for professional counseling. We are just parents who are walking this road of grief, a few years ahead of some folks, and decades behind others. That’s why we use the term “facilitating” … We will all be learning from each other. Each meeting is based around a particular Scripture passage and will address a specific topic faced by grieving parents.
This event takes place the third Monday of each month at 6:30pm.
