Are you struggling with enduring your daily life without your loved one?  Are you feeling overwhelmed by the grieving process?

Jesus House Prayer and Renewal Center offers on-going monthly meetings.  Participation is open to adults who are coping with the recent or long standing loss of a loved one.  These grief support groups are designed to offer support, comfort, and coping skills to adults who have sustained the loss of a loved one.

Members of the support group will have the opportunity to share as they feel comfortable, while addressing the emotional issues and challenging changes surrounding the death of a loved one.  Also included will be practical considerations as how to cope with anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, and memorials, as well as learning about the possible behavioral, cognitive, emotional, physical and spiritual responses one can experience in grief and helpful means to understand the bereavement process.  

Co-facilitators: will be
