Care Ministry

A Ministry for Sharing Our Losses:
A Journey of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

Care ministry

Have you ever felt that your life was in the middle of a great storm?  You weren’t sure how or when it will end, or where it might take you.  Perhaps you were frightened, disoriented, had trouble problem solving, felt lost, angry, numb, guilty, sad or alone. Were there even moments when you were just too tired to care?  If you have experienced a recent loss in you life due to the death of a loved one or close friend, divorce, separation, loss of job, prolonged illness, loss of a pregnancy, or a reduction in income, I believe you may have known and experienced one or more of these feelings and emotions above.

Our St. James Community will begin a series of six-sessions entitled “Sharing our Losses. . .A Journey of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love” on Tuesday, September 15 and Wednesday, September 16. The sessions will be offered both in the early afternoon (Wed-1:00-2:30) and evening (Tue 6:00-8:30).  There will be time for prayer, scripture, sharing, and reflection.  It is the hope of our facilitators that this journey will help your healing process, bringing new hope and inner peace.

We know that God is the true healer, but we also believe that He works through each of us as we share His love with one another. We will provide a safe place and time for anyone who is hurting.  As such, all sharing will be confidential and respectfully received.  This is not an attempt to provide professional counseling, rather to share personal stories with others who are also experiencing loss.  There will be time for quiet meditation, and listening to God’s soft whisper and touch.  The facilitators will be with you as guides, fellow travelers who, like you are searching for answers, new direction, and a continual rebirth of Christ’s love in our hearts.  We are all broken in some way.  We all need Christ.  We all need the hope, peace, joy and love that only a relationship with Him can provide.

Please prayerfully ask if you are being called to join this Journey.  We begin September 14 and 15.  Choose a time and day that fits your schedule. See Session Schedule below.
