H.O.P.E. (Healing Our Pain…Eventually) Ministry

Have you suffered the pain of loss and are looking for a support group? Many of our past and present GriefShare participants have connected to form a new Care Ministry called HOPE.They meet once a month for social activities and service work.

In June, the group had a picnic and brainstormed activities and volunteer opportunities. In July, we met for a pizza and bowling night (see below). An evening of fun and fellowship was had by all who attended. In August, we met for pizza and a movie. It was on this evening that the group came together with backpacks (see margin photo) and school supplies for the Aparicio children. This ministry group has connected because of loss, and they were able to help this family who also suffered great loss. If you would like to join HOPE, contact Brenda Lytle, at brenda@ascensionelca.org, to get dates and times of activities and events.
