What have people said about our their experience in our grief support groups?

“I am grateful and blessed to have been invited to this group at a very dark time in my life.  I will forever be grateful for being able to go through this journey with my group.”

"It helped me realize some of the pressure [from others] to pretend everything was okay."

"This group gave me a life back, a chance to be happy again."

"[This group] has afforded me a process to make sense of my feelings and offer expectations for what is to come."

"This group has been a blessing in a very painful jouney."

Shopping for the Food Bank

null

 

I would like to invite you to our first Get Together of the year!

Please join me on Monday October 1, 2018 at noon to do some grocery shopping for those in need in our community.  I would like to meet in the Starbucks area of Save-On Foods in south east Airdrie (near Kings Heights).  We can go through the store together and each get some items that we will then take to the Airdrie Food Bank. 

Whether you get one can of soup, some boxed items, a frozen turkey or most of a Thanksgiving meal, you will be blessing those in our community with your generosity. 

The Food Bank will be distributing hampers Tuesday through Friday for Thanksgiving so our Monday drop off will ensure the items are received for Thanksgiving! 

If you would like to donate but are unable to come shopping, please feel free to bring items/gifts cards/cash to church on September 30.   I would also welcome drop offs of items at our home anytime between now and the evening of September 30.  (Here is the link to the Food Bank’s website for the most needed items: https://www.airdriefoodbank.com/whatsneeded.html)

Please get in touch with me with questions, to confirm your attendance, or to arrange donation drop-off.

Looking forward to shopping together soon!

God made us all unique and special. But it’s hard to understand others sometimes. Whether it’s our kids, partner or people we work with, they think, act, talk and behave very different from us. Understanding our four unique personality types really is like getting an owners-manual for all of our relationships. Practical tools, a lot of fun, insights to last a lifetime, and the chance to keep saying “I love you just the way you are” and actually know what that involves.

 

"I've attended a lot of workshops, but this one most certainly stands out as a 'must do for all of us in our growth as individuals, and for our relationships with those in our lives."

-Pastor Tim Posyluzny (Ret.) Holy Spirit Lutheran Church, Edmonton
