The First Presbyterian Church of Irwin is
a foundation of believers seeking to proclaim the love of God through the
joyous message of Jesus Christ. Building on each member's
spiritual gifts, we spread His message of love and hope throughout our congregation and community.
~ Bible Verse Reading:
"ONE THING HAVE I DESIRED OF THE LORD,
THAT WILL I SEEK AFTER; THAT I MAY DWELL
IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD ALL THE DAYS
OF MY LIFE, TO BEHOLD THE BEAUTY OF THE
LORD, AND TO INQUIRE IN HIS TEMPLE."

This program features Biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Past participants have related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them.
Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don't allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program.
Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one's death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
