Care Support

Grief Support Group - Coping with Loss

GRIEF  SUPPORT
ALL SAINTS LUTHERAN CHURCH
15649 N. 7th Street
Phoenix, AZ 85022

Check back for information on next meeting dates in 2018

When attempting to describe the depth of emotion we experience when someone we love dies, we struggle to put our sorrow and pain into words and into a context we can understand.  Whether you are recently bereaved or experiencing the pain of long-standing grief, Good Grief is provided to give you the encouragement needed to help you move forward with your changed lives.

The Good Grief support group provides an emotionally safe environment in which to process the pain of loss that occurs. We laugh and we cry and begin to heal, each in our own way. A group of 3-8 adults committed to regular attendance provides the best experience. We welcome parishioners and our friends in the community.

The Good Grief Support Group is:

  • A place where people come together to work on and understand the consequences and pain of a life change.
  • A safe place where you can share your story, your struggles, your concerns.
  • An empowering place where you have the freedom to ask “the big questions!”
  • A gathering place where you can safely search for your own answers with the support of others.
  • A loving, caring, generous, educational, healing place.
     8  IMPORTANT WEEKS!

We will gather around the “kitchen table” in the Office Workroom
On Monday  evenings: 6:30—8:00 p.m.
No support group is scheduled during June, July or August.
Parishioners and our friends in the community are welcome!

We laugh and we cry and begin to heal, each in our own way. A group of 3—8 adults committed to regular attendance provides the best experience.

THERE IS NO COST TO YOU FOR THIS MINISTRY.

Stephen Ministry

Contact:  Carole Becker, Stephen Leader Referral Coordinator, 602.319.0959 or cbecker@allsaintsphoenix.org.

All Saints is a Stephen Ministry congregation. The Stephen Ministry logo symbolizes that we are all broken people and that it is through the cross of Jesus that we are made whole.

Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis. But there are so many more needs for ongoing, one-to-one care than pastors effectively can meet by themselves. Stephen Ministry provides a solution. Gifted lay people are trained to support and extend the care that pastors continue to provide. Stephen Ministers reach out with God's love to people who are hurting....both parishioners and people in our surrounding community.

Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and what takes place in each caring relationship remain private.
