HOPE AND HEALING GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP:
The Summit Evangelical Free Church in Alta, Iowa, is offering the “Hope and Healing” Grief Support Group beginning April 6, 2022, at 6:30 PM at the church, located at 1000 S. Main Street in Alta. This six-week grief support group is open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one, friend or significant person in their life. The group will be facilitated by Pastor Brad Smith and his wife, Joy. The Smith’s have over 30 years of experience in conducting this grief support group in providing a setting for people to both give and receive support and encouragement as they progress through this healing process. There is no cost to participate in the group but it’d be helpful to please call the church at 712-200-2200 to register for the class so adequate materials will be available.
