At PHPC, we know that the dynamics of grief are complex since they involve physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. We recognize the need for support through the journey that leads to healing, so we offer several opportunities that may help you through the grieving process.

Wrestling with Grief is a five-week class held on Monday nights from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the church Parlor. The workshop is based on Joan Chittister’s book, Scarred by Struggle, Transformed by Hope, in which she explores the Biblical story of Jacob wrestling with God and her own story of battling with life-changing disappointments. The workshop facilitator will be Regina Strader Hunt. Regina is an Elder at First Presbyterian Church Dallas, a commissioned lay pastor, and a Stephen Minister. The five-week class is $40. Questions?
