When life doesn’t go to plan, things can become very difficult, very quickly. Loved ones pass away, family members get caught in addiction, your marriage falls apart, and so many other things can happen that make life seem like it’s spinning out of control. With that in mind, we offer these ministries that are designed to give you support and equip you with the tools to move forward. If you find yourself in a position where you would like help, please click either picture and email Janice Adams to find out more information.
Grief Share is a 13-session workshop that meets weekly for two hours to encourage and bring hope to those on the grief journey. Each session includes a Bible-based program with video, group discussion and workbook exercises to help you understand your loss and designed to bring HOPE for survivors. Classes begin Tuesday, February 23, at 6:30 p.m. The loneliness and empty feelings are real, and processing with others who are grieving can be very helpful. The class will meet on Tuesdays in the Community Life Center at Salem First Baptist Church, Room 420, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. Registration is $23 – scholarships are available. For additional information please call the church office – 503-364-2285.
NEXT SESSION start date TBA. Sessions are on Sundays in the CLC room 423 from 3:30 to 5:00pm.
The registration fee is $23 which includes a workbook, snacks, and all the adult sessions. We want everyone to be able to attend, and we understand finances can be very tight during divorce. If you need help with the registration fee, please speak to one of the coordinators. For more information, contact Janice Adams at 541-760-3649.
