Grief Support

We realize that grief challenges those who have lost a loved one, a friend, or a family member to question themselves. Questions like, Is my grief normal? Will life every regain meaning? Why do I cry at unexpected times?

Our Grief Support group offers a relaxed approach to participating only as much as you may want to, with a promise to not present confrontational techniques or theological lectures or pass judgment on anyone’s feelings.


    Who Should Attend?

All who are struggling with a loss and seeking recovery are welcome and encouraged to visit and find peace again. Your loss may be a spouse, a parent, a sibling, a family member, or a friend. Your journey of grief may have just begun or it may have been festering with you for decades.

Grief is a natural reaction to a loss of relationship that causes conflict with your emotional, physical, and familiar pattern of day to day life. Whoever you have lost, whenever you had the loss, you will find practical encouragement at the Grief Support at CrossHope Chapel.



We are in the process of gauging interest in our community and gatherings names before choosing a start date. We are planning on Thursday evenings, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM when we start. Please let us know your interest in being notified of when we meet by email to


    Facilitation & Material

The Grief Support group is facilitated by Steve Durkac, the pastor of CrossHope Chapel and a long time hospital chaplain at Providence Hospital, who is trained in bereavement care.

We will share from proven grief recovery experts and materials, like the Center for Loss Life Transition and The Grief Sessions. You’ll find practical helps drawn from scientific research, real-life experiences, and Bible-centered principles.

From week to week, through conversations, video presentations, handouts, journal, and a guidebook, you will learn ways to cope and turn loss into living again.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
