Safe Families for Children volunteer training (Thu. Feb 11, 2016 6:00 pm)

Safe Families for Children is an international movement of volunteers and churches, motivated by compassion and biblical hospitality, that help families experiencing a crisis and have no support. Host Families temporarily provide a home and care for a child while the parent is able to get back on their feet. Parents also receive relational and spiritual support from other volunteers. Safe Families for Children seeks to prevent child abuse, prevent children from having to enter child welfare and helps to strengthen and preserve families. Join the movement and become a Safe Families volunteer!

Now that you've made it through the hustle and bustle of the holidays and the sound of Christmas carols have faded, you're left, once again, with the loneliness of daily life without your loved one.

 

Trinity Lutheran Church and School will begin a Winter Session of GriefShare on Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. This 13-week session will take place at Trinity Lutheran School in Springfield.

 

GriefShare is not about simply feeling better but having the ability to find joy in life again. It is to treasure the memory of loved ones, to miss them and to live better because of the time you spent with them.

 

GriefShare is built around three components: video seminar, support group and workbook. You'll learn ways to sort through your thoughts and emotions and learn what the Bible says about grief-related topics.
