We are cancer fighters, cancer caregivers, spouses and cancer survivors, trusting God to get us through these challenges. Join us for fellowship, encouragement and prayer.

A grief support group of people who have experienced the loss of a loved one. GriefShare is designed to help individuals cope with the searing pain of loss in their lives and to unlock their emotions for healing. This 13-week course also involves small, daily devotions to help each individual stay connected to God. Attending GriefShare helps to form new relationships with others who also have experienced the loss of an important person in their lives.

You are welcome to join Griefshare at any time during the session as each lesson does not build on another. If you already have the current Griefshare book, there is no charge to attend.

Echoes of Hope, a faith-based support group, offers encouragement to those who have lost a spouse as we become whole and complete in Christ. We focus on understanding that our identity is more than as a widow or widower- our identity is in Christ Jesus who sustains us as we face the challenges of our changed lives. In addition, our varied social events offer opportunities to counter loneliness and isolation. Together, we will study "Trusting God" by Jerry Bridges. The Echoes of Hope support meeting is on the second Sunday of each month at 4 PM in the Prayer Chapel (open invitation for dinner after the meeting). Dates and times of our monthly social events vary.

Please sign up to get emails from Echoes of Hope by contacting Alan Cavin.
