A Day of Reflection for Men & Women
Grief has many facets and is a natural process given to help us heal. However, at times feelings of discouragement, deep sadness, anger, and even hopelessness can overwhelm us. If this is where you find yourself, come spend a day away for rest and renewal where the focus will be on finding God amidst the struggles associated with grief.
Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
