You are welcome to begin attending GriefShare at any session, as each one is self-contained and doesn’t need to occur in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin.

Continued Need in our Schools
Thank you so much for the donations that have been received in response to the needs in our public schools. There is still need for food items especially as many schools feed children breakfast, lunch and after-school snacks as well as sending home food for the weekend. Items most needed are individually packaged items such as fruit cups, and granola bar type items as well as breakfast food such as cheesewhiz, jam, cheese slices and fresh fruit. If you wish to drop off perishable items please contact LaurieW@CrossRoadsChurch.ca or drop off items in Ministry Lane. Details available on the postcards in Ministry Lane.
