This Morning of Healing is being given to support families who have experienced the loss of a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth or other perinatal loss. Perinatal loss involves emotional, relational and spiritual suffering that requires assistance from family, friends and church leaders. It touches the lives of many people yet all too often this tragedy remains unspoken of. We hope this day will provide those who have been affected, a day to recognize their loss, to grieve with the support of others, gain knowledge about the process of grief and obtain related resources. Presentations will be given as well as, small group discussions. There will be time for prayer during a memorial service and parents will have an opportunity to name their child, if they desire so. This simple yet profound action is a concrete way of affirming that this life was and is a unique person. Most of all, we pray that those affected by this heartbreak will discover healing and hope.

Babysitting, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
