No matter what the circumstances, grief recovery is a painful process. Here at Essential Rock Church, we have experienced this all too frequently just in 2017 alone. Our church body has been hit by the loss of several loved ones to cancer, heart attack, car accidents, and yes, even suicide. We have experienced first hand how devastating the death of a loved one can be and how deep the ongoing grieving process is that follows it.
We have decided to begin a special class that we will be starting at the end of July called GriefShare. GriefShare is a Christ-centered, community outreach support group whose goal is to help provide ongoing, effective ministry to people in our community who are grieving the death of a loved one.
We believe that God can use even the most painful of life's circumstances to bring people into a place of peace through the foundation of healing - a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Throughout the GriefShare program, you will hear people talking about the importance of a relationship with Jesus in healing from the deep pain of grief. In fact, you will hear it said that you cannot fully heal from grief without the power of Christ in your life. In the video below, actual GriefShare participants share their personal testimonies of grief recovery.
