New Grief Share Ministry

-Good Sam is excited to launch a new ministry in partnership with Trinity United Church of Christ. GriefShare is a support group for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. GriefShare is a network of more than 12,000 churches worldwide empowering congregations to offer grief support groups.The program is for anyone struggling with grief and offers Biblical concepts for healing from grief from a Christian perspective.

Each session will include a video seminar, small group discussion and support, and journaling and reflection utilizing a workbook provided free of charge.

Prayer Request & Scripture


Isaiah 43: 2-4

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your savior…Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you.”

The Pottery will be displayed outside the Main Dining Room until Friday, June 10th. At that time, the pieces will be given to the owners. Please feel free to stop by and take a look!
