Grief Care

We are so thankful to be able to offer Grief Care. Grief Care was written and produced by one of our team, Jane Kratz. If you are grieving the death of a loved one, then we invite you to join this 9 week course in processing your grief.

The design of this grief group is relational because we serve a relational God. God has created us not only as relational but also physical beings who thrive on human contact and touch. This is particularly true in relation to the death of a loved one whose physical absence we are grieving. For this reason, our Grief Care course is offered as an in-person care group.

Our prayer is that you would come to know and experience more of the Comfort of God, both as you continue to grieve the death of your loved one and as you love and serve others in your grief.

Please email L2@biblicalcounsellingafrica.com  for the next available course in your area.

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the Lord are true, and righteous altogether.

– Psalm 19: 7-9

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

– Romans 8:1

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

– Colossians 2:6-7

And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.

– 1 Thessalonians 5:14

The purpose in a man’s heart is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out.

– Proverbs 20:5
