Grief Support Sessions

A five-week series of grief support sessions will begin on Thursday, April 16, running through Thursday, May 14, from 10:00 – 11:15 a.m.  

We invite anyone who has experienced a significant loss to join us – whether you’ve experienced the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, or loss of abilities due to illness or injury. Even if you can’t be there every week, come when you can. 

We begin with a devotional word, and then focus on a topic which is some aspect of dealing with grief.  It’s a supportive group that finds healing through being together. 

The sessions are open to anyone from the Spring Grove area, so share this word with others.  

Let us know if you would like to attend so that we have enough materials. Contact the church office at 498-5291 or email trinity@springgrove.coop.  If you have questions, please feel free to talk with Pastor Stephanie.

Trinity will receive and welcome new members at worship on Sunday, April 26.
