Caring and Serving


Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. Through GriefShare, you will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a loved one. At each session, there will be a DVD, followed by a small group discussion. Past participants have related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.

Thank you to the caring members of St. John’s and a Thrivent Action Team grant has helped start this program.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 
who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, 
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, 
so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; 
and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings 
that we suffer.” 
(2 Corinthians 1:3–6, ESV)
