After the unthinkable has happened, how do you go on? Finding peace and healing after the death of a spouse can seem impossible.
Come learn what this kind of grief looks like, explore where to find God in the midst of it, and gain tips and skills for coping, healing, and embracing new life. It is possible to once again know happiness and live with a full heart.
A morning of spiritual comfort, engaging community and hope through prayer, presentation and discussion.
