SHIFT


OUR MISSION: TO PROCLAIM + EMBODY
THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST IN THE CITY + THE WORLD

Have you experienced the death of someone close in your life? Do you need a space to experience grief in community? SHIFT is a time for students to come together with trained leaders to talk and learn about loss. Groups meet weekly and are designed for children in grades 5-12.



WHAT IS SHIFT?

When the “shifts” of life occur, the aftermath is unpredictable and rarely stable. SHIFT at Eastbrook Church is a grief support program for kids & teens who have experienced the loss of a family member, friend, or loved one to find hope and healing in Christ.

For 13 weeks, your children become involved in a fun, caring group. The weekly session is led by facilitators who have experienced loss, a small group consisting of kids from their age group who are also processing the death of a loved one, and age-appropriate lessons and activities to help them explore their grief and God’s promises regarding comfort, healing, hope and eternity. Death does not define us and has no hold on us when we talk about it.

The aim of SHIFT is similar to that of GriefShare (our support group for adults).

SHIFT is designed for kids and teens in grades 5–12.



OUR NEXT SESSION:

There are no SHIFT sessions scheduled for Spring 2024.
