Care Ministry: GriefShare

  • Church of the Saviour (Bldg. A-120) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. Often family and friends want to help you but don’t know how.  This can be a confusing time creating feelings of isolation and prompting many questions.

Our group is led by caring people who have a real concern for those experiencing the grief of loss. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place.  We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.

Our GriefShare group meets weekly for 13 weeks (beginning June 6th) to help attendees face these challenges and move toward rebuilding their lives. Attendees are welcome to join our group at any session. Each session is “self-contained”.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin.

Lebanon Short-Term Missions Team Application Deadline

Lebanon is a country of around 6 million people with almost 1.5 million refugees (mostly from Syria). We are building a relationship with Horizons International which has seen over 1,000 Muslims come to Christ in the past 4 years. A team would work with Horizons to visit refugee villages, build relationships, give out Arabic Bibles, and share the gospel. Lebanon is a majority Muslim country (about 60%) that allows freedom of religion. It is one of the most stable countries in the region and provides a great opportunity to share about Jesus with people who have never heard the gospel. Only about 0.5% of the population are evangelical Christians.

From Liberty to Captivity Screening

 

From Liberty to Captivity investigated how Pennsylvania, once a representation of freedom to so many, is now a state where human trafficking and slavery are flourishing. With its proverbial lens, From Liberty To Captivity zooms in on Pennsylvania’s booming and profitable sex trafficking industry, which threatens to destroy the principle of “liberty and justice for all” here in our own communities. This feature-length film  awakens people from all walks of life to the pervasive reality of sex trafficking in Pennsylvania; but also plants seeds of hope, inspiring us to join the fight as we carry forth the legacy of the abolitionists.

After the film, Kim Checkeye will lead the Q&A. Kim served for 14 years as the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization recognized in providing restorative care for sexually exploited women. Kim has a passion for educating about sex trafficking as well as training direct care providers on identifying victims and working with survivors through a trauma informed lens. Kim is a powerful speaker with compelling stories and a wealth of experience in this field.

Screening is free & open to the public. More information about the film available at www.fromlibertytocaptivity.com

Paul is principally concerned with the controversy surrounding Gentile Christians and the Mosaic Law during the Apostolic Age.

The Galatians study is 16 weeks running from January 13-April 28 (No class March 24th or April 21st.) We will be going through eight lessons and we divide each lesson in half to be completed over two weeks to equal 16 weeks for the course (a much slower pace for busy styles without compromising in depth study.)

JOY in the Morning invites you to join in our warm, inter-generational community that will help you understand the context and meaning of the Bible so you can apply it to your life with fellowship, support, and prayer. Free childcare provided with registration. This semester we will offer two different study options:

Topical: Priscilla Shirer - Discerning the Voice of God

Pricilla Shirer’s Discerning the Voice of God is a 7 video Bible study which will help us discover the root to clear and daily communication with God - humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life. Our JoyAM class will view a video every other week, and reflect and share what we are learning from the study guide on the off weeks.  

Cost is $20

Bible Study: Mark (Lifechange)

Regardless of where you are in your faith journey, this year long in-depth study of Mark will introduce you to Jesus through a life changing encounter with God's Word. 


When Jesus came claiming to be the promised Messiah, the Jewish people were expecting a powerful warrior-king who would throw off their oppressors. Instead, He served the needs of the weak and suffered injury from the strong. Because He did not fit their ideal picture of a messiah, the people rejected Him. Mark’s Gospel, probably the earliest account of Jesus’ life, shows us how Jesus upsets our expectations in order to give us something better than we could imagine. The flexible guide allows you to individually adjust the quantity and depth of your study.

New Winter 2019 registrations are welcome!  We will be starting class with a review of Mark 1-8 to catch everyone up, so you can jump right in.


Cost is $20. Free child care available with registration.
