GriefShare Spring Session

GriefShare is a free special weekly seminar and support group for people who are grieving the death of someone close to them.

GriefShare is a place where you can be around other people who understand how you may be feeling from the pain of your loss.  At GriefShare, you’ll learn valuable information that will help you through this difficult time in your life.

It hurts to lose someone. Find help at GriefShare. Weekly seminars start Wednesday, February 22 and run through May 17, 2017 from 6:15-8:30 pm, in the church lounge. (Both north and south doors will be open and handicap accessible).  GriefShare is open to the public.

Each of the 13 sessions is a stand alone session, meaning that you can join the group at any time. A $10 donation is recommended to help defray the cost of the Devotional Resource Book.

Contact the church office (260-356-2642) for more information

Family Mission Team Luncheon Fundraiser

Family Mission Trip – A team of families from College Park Church (25 people) will be traveling during spring break to work together with United Brethren Churches in Nicaragua in reaching out to their community.
Why? We seek to be intentional about many things in our children’s lives. We particularly want to be intentional about our children’s spiritual lives. This trip provides an opportunity for our families to serve together, and to grow in our understanding of what it means for our family to be followers of Jesus Christ. It will also help our children understand the world is much bigger than Huntington, Indiana.
How you can help! SUNDAY, February 12th, the team will be doing a luncheon fundraiser after Sunday School and second service. It will be a baked potato bar, with pulled pork and sides. We hope you can participate. Each family is raising funds to participate.
