River City Community Center is excited to announce the start of River of Hope, a grief support program for adults and children ages 4 and above who have experienced the death of someone significant. Through peer-support groups, participants engage in creative, hands-on activities designed to help them express their feelings in a safe and supportive environment and develop healthy coping skills to build resiliency for their future.
River of Hope will launch on Monday, October 14. Volunteer training will occur on Monday, September 16. Community volunteers are welcome. All meetings will be held at the River City Community Center, located at 2842 Old US 231 S in Lafayette, Indiana.
“At River of Hope, we believe that grief is normal. The best road to a healthy future is through expressing grief-related emotions in a safe and supportive environment and using the experience to help others. People should be allowed to grieve at their own pace. Every grief experience is unique,” said Jeanne Silva, River of Hope Program Coordinator.
“River City Church is committed to seeing people transformed by God’s love, and River of Hope is one more path for this to happen. By providing grief support services for ages 4 and up, we will provide a much-needed path for community members looking for peace in a difficult season of their lives,” said Robby Bradford, Lead Pastor of River City Church and president of the River City Community Center.
