Faith & Grief Workshop » Sept 7 - Oct 12, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Richardson Area Faith and Grief Ministries is offering a Workshop on Grief for six weeks this fall. The loss of a loved one leaves us seeking answers to questions about grief. Our culture is often unhelpful when making our way through the maze of feelings that may we experience. Grief truly is a journey of emotions as well as physical and social changes. If you have experienced a loss and find yourself needing a safe place to process your grief, join us for a six week workshop where you can share your story and pose your questions, a place where you can find comfort among others who understand. Leadership: Diane Pennington
Sept 7 - Oct 12, 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church
3901 North Star Road, Richardson, TX 75082
Or call 469-251-9612 or call the church office to register with Ida at 972-238-8103.
