NORTH SIDE GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP

Still not too late to join the group….

The next meeting the North Side Grief Support Group is Wednesday, November 9th at 7:00pm. It will be held at the facilitator’s home located at 5004 N 134 Street. Initially, the plan is to meet for six sessions and then assess if the group wishes to continue.

There is NO FEE. The book to be used is “Understanding Your Grief, Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart”.  The book is $15.00 from the facilitator, or you may obtain your own from Amazon.com.

Grief is not something to get over, but to acknowledge, honor and learn to control.  For many, it is a struggle to just get through each day. Being part of a grief support group will help you on your journey toward recovery. No one should go through the grieving process alone. The support group will be a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Whether your loss is recent or long past, your grief may still be fresh. Your loss of a loved one whether human or animal, leaves a void that cannot be filled, but life has to go on.

This group will use the resources of renowned author, educator and grief counselor, Dr. Alan Wolfelt, director of the Center for Loss and Life Transition in Fort Collins, Colorado. This group is not associated with any particular faith, hospital or organization. It is being  facilitated by Rev. Susan Ellis, M.Div., CHI Health Chaplain  and minister of North Side Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

REACHING OUT

  • Samaritan bags can be picked up at church. Please take a few bags to hand out to the needy. There’s nothing like a bottle of water and snacks to get you through the day.

  • Do you have eye glasses sitting around other than on your head?  Bring them to church.  The frames can be reused and provide new sights for those in need. A box will be available to put them in.

    There is No Place Like Old North Side 

  •     (tune Nebraska Fight Song)

There is no place like old North Side

I’m North Side through and through

Where the pastor’s here to feed us

The people are the sweetest

of any old church I knew

There is no place like old North Side

where they’re all true blue

                                    God’s kept us together,                                                                                                                                                             through all kinds of weather

                                Oh North Side, we love you.                                                                                          ___________________________________________________________ words by Rev. Jonathan Wilhoft 2016
