Bereavement Support Group

Our Bereavement Support Group is here for those suffering the loss of any loved one. After the loss of a loved one, the journey toward healing can be overwhelmingly lonely at a times.

We encourage those who have recently experienced a death of a loved one or those who continue in the process of bereavement to attend this gathering of care and support.

We offer the guidance of a professional facilitator as well as support and understanding of others experiencing grief. Members have personally experienced a death within their family and know the hurt, pain and loneliness that emerges when someone we love is no longer part of out lives.

We meet two times a month on THURSDAY evenings at 7:00-9:00 pm. There is no charge involved. Notice will be in church bulletin as to the date and place of each meeting.

For More information please call Beulah Eckes at (714)529-0639.
