Grief & Loss Support Group for Widows/Widowers
May 24 @ 9:45 am – 11:00 am

Society promotes many misconceptions about grief (e.g., emotions are only acceptable at funerals, grief is brief, only immediate family are impacted, …etc.) that may hinder the recovery process. There is no single pattern to grief. The benefits of a support group with others who have experienced the loss of a spouse or partner helps universalize your experience. You are not alone, although it may feel that way sometimes. Listening to the experience of others who have traversed rough waters usually lends helpful insights into personal practices. For example, ‘how do you make the big house feel less empty’? ‘I don’t want to cook only for myself’. Please join us every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month in the rectory parlor, beginning March 8th, to explore supportive ways grief and loss can be the entry point of God’s healing in your life.
Please join us!

Scripture Deep Dive–Acts of the Apostles
May 28 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am

Come explore the beginnings of the early church movement as studied through the Acts of the Apostles. You might call Acts the ‘part II’ in Luke’s narrative. First, he told us in his Gospel that Jesus is the Christ who God raised from the dead for the forgiveness of sins. He then will explain in Acts how Christians are to live now that the return of Jesus is not expected within their lifetime. Join us every Saturday of May & June at 8:00a.m. in the parish library to dive deep into God’s word. Begin your weekend with scripture and you will not regret it!
