Grief is a universal experience.

Churches in the Bloomington-Richfield area are working together to provide support and education for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one.
Group meetings are held on Thursdays, 4:30-6:00pm – Each session includes: 4:30-5:00pm – Educational presentation, 5:00-6:00pm – Small groups will be formed to share concerns and experiences
Understanding the grief process and the many emotions involved in working through one’s grief make the journey less frightening. Guest speakers share their own experience and professional knowledge on grief and loss.
Small groups will follow a speaker or video each week. In these group participants will have the opportunity to share their feelings and concerns with others who are also working through the grief process.   Specially trained facilitators lead the groups.
