Grief Support – October 6 weeks

Special occasions and holidays —such as birthdays and anniversaries—are extremely difficult for those who have experienced the death of a loved one.

Although there are no easy ways to cope with heartache, this six -week series will provide support and particular suggestions for handling grief now and year round. The content of each week’s session builds upon the previous week, so participants benefit most by attending all sessions.

This opportunity is offered as a community service by Reverence Hospice; there is no charge.

Bereavement Letter Writers

We have a wonderful ministry here – that sends letters, notes, prayers to our parishioner who has lost a loved one. We correspond 4-5 times over the course of the year. We currently have had more funerals than we have letter writers and I am seeking some new volunteers. The commitment is based on your schedule and your timing. You can send a pre printed card or hand write your thoughts, prayers, or scripture citing. Would you prayerfully consider this ministry. All ages are welcome – young and the wise J

Please contact Kim Houseman, if you would like to be put on a rotation list.

Peace to you

We work with Troy People Concerned to feed the hungry in Troy.  With September and back to school time, families are tight on budget and need our help.  Can you donate $20-$25 in gift cards (to Kroger or Meijer) so we can buy some food (and meat) to feed those in need?

Your donations are greatly appreciated.
