What Is It To Face Life's Losses?

Saturday, October 27, 10:00am - 12:30pm
Pender Drive Office and Community Center
Childcare Provided

What is it like to “Face Life’s Losses?”

Life is full of painful losses that must be grieved, but many of us have found that our culture does not welcome grief nor supply the support we need to face the pain and move toward surrendering it. 

We would like to offer this gathering on October 27 in order to 1) support each other as we embrace the journey of grieving, 2) increase our understanding of grief and loss in its many forms and experience the comfort and freedom that Christ offers us, 3) assess participant interest in an ongoing structured caring/sharing group to support each other and/or a series of experiential workshops that offer both deeper learning and healing.

This seminar will be an interactive time together that looks at grief through a broad lens, exploring what we grieve, how we grieve, and the journey through grief with Christ. It will introduce foundational elements from the class, “Facing Life’s Losses” that broaden understanding of grief and loss, not just about loss through death. We will:

  • Discuss relational circuits and strategies to help us connect to ourselves, others and the Lord.

  • Introduce and experience Immanuel prayer.

  • Introduce journaling with the Lord about our blessings, losses and regrets.

  • Offer freedom to honestly explore ALL our feelings.

  • Introduce the complexities of offering and receiving forgiveness

  • Give an overview of a structured caring/sharing group that offers shared support. 

  • Give an overview of the full class content for “Facing Life’s Losses”  

  • Survey the group as to interest and availability for both a class and a caring and sharing group.

Come if you’re hurting or know someone who is, if you’re curious, if you’re a quiet observer or enjoy verbal sharing. There is never any pressure to share. All are welcome and valued!

The seminar will be facilitated by Lib Gillam, MSW, LCSW, a member of our congregation, using materials developed and adapted by Betsy Stalcup, Director, Healing Center International.

Pender Dr. Office & Community Center
Registration Cost: $35/Couple (includes all dates and book)
Free Childcare with Registration

The Healing Center is pleased to announce that we will be bringing back Date Night. Last year, the purpose of the 10 Great Dates program was to help couples build their relationship through dating. Each Date Night will include a brief word of encouragement, and an overview of the topic which will set the stage for discussion. Couples are then sent out for their own private date. Free childcare will be available for children up to age 11 (6th grade) beginning at 4:45pm and ending 8:00pm.

This year we are adding a new dimension to the Date Night Program, Date Night 2.0. These dates are crafted to help you connect faith, love, and marriage in ways that result in a deeper spiritual connection—in a fun, grace-filled, safe format. Engaged couples, newlyweds and “oldy-weds” are encouraged to attend!

You may be feeling apprehensive or skeptical. Jack and I understand completely (as do the authors of the book). Many have the deep desire to connect more spiritually with their spouse but they may have found it difficult. If so, you are not alone.  It is time to put away your doubts, concerns, regrets, and should-haves, and join us on fun dates that can jump-start spiritual growth and put new excitement and energy into this very important aspect of your relationship. 

The Dates will be held on the second Saturday of each month. Monthly attendance is not required; however, there is great benefit to participating regularly. Dates will begin at 5:00pm in the Chapel at the Pender Dr. office.

The cost of participation is $35.00 per couple for all Ten Dates and the book. There will be a chance to win fabulous prizes each Date Night. We will provide the book to you in advance if you pre-register by October 8, 2018. Please do not let the cost prohibit your participation, scholarships are available. Advance registration for Childcare is required. Please register by October 8, 2018 so that we can plan for enough materials and adequate childcare. Registration details below.

Dates:

  • November 10: Appreciating Your Differences

  • December 8: Experiencing God Together
