Safe Place, a free ministry of Hillcrest Baptist Church, provides children with a safe place to talk about their loss and help them move through the grief process toward healing. Small groups are led by volunteer facilitators who have completed background checks and trainings. Each session lasts ten weeks and is designed to facilitate children's movement through the grief process toward acceptance of life's changes and losses, forgiveness of those whom they perceive to have caused the changes and losses, and an understanding that despite the crisis their Heavenly Father remains constant in His presence and His love.
If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare is a free ministry for grieving adults. Groups meet weekly at Hillcrest Baptist Church to help participants move toward rebuilding their lives.
