Many of us have experienced loss this past year without the opportunity to grieve through our usual traditions of funerals and time spent with relatives and friends. The Care Ministry Team at Platte Woods UMC would like to extend an invitation to anyone who is experiencing grief to our A Time to Mourn event. The purpose of this morning is to :
Remember the Life of your loved one.
Honor your personal grief.
Be surrounded by our Caring Community.
The worship service will have a time of reflection and music, and will provide an opportunity for a “formal” memorial service, especially for those who were not able to have a funeral for their loved ones during 2020.
In the workshop, we will learn more about grief through The Birdhouse Project, where we will process by actually building a birdhouse to take home. (Please bring a hammer and screwdriver to the workshop.)
You can register for worship, the workshop or both. Register by May 14.
