RECOVERY PROGRAMS

Grief to Joy
First Tuesday of the month @ 7 pm, North Olmsted Campus
Upper Room
 
Grief to Joy is a monthly gathering and support group that extends an open hand to those moving through grief of any kind. There is deep healing power in a community that can grieve together. It is a place to be around people who understand what you are feeling and are led by a team who have walked through grief themselves. To assist participants on their journey, we provide the resource, Beyond the Broken Heart: Daily Devotions for Your Grief Journey by Julie Yarbrough. We encourage you to experience God’s healing here. Open to all who grieve; the only cost is your time.
