TLC (Tender Loving Care) Groups:

     More than a Bible study it is all about people taking care of people in real physical and spiritual ways. We kick off each fall and close for the summer in June with an "All Are Welcome BBQ" at a comfortable home.

    Loving and Losing is a Bible study for those that have lost a loved one - especially widows and widowers.  Through the timeless lens of Scripture, we will find comfort and hope as we focus on these relevant issues:

- Loving and Losing
- Coping Skills
- Individual Grieving Processes
- Developing an Attitude of Appreciation
- Giving Back
- Living On, Loving On

    Our hope to speak and share words of comfort to people who walk this path until we are all gathered up around the throne of the Lamb. This is your opportunity to share your thoughts and experiences with others who also walk with you on this path within this group.

    Remember, God, “who comforts us in all our troubles, [comforts us] so we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”
(1 Corinthians 1:4)

    This is why we are gathering.  Let’s take advantage of what our Lord offers.  
    Hope to see you there!

    Your servant in Christ,
        Pastor Nowak
