Starting on Wednesday October 9, along with Memories Funeral Home, I will be offering a grief support group for 9 weeks.
There will be two sessions to select from. A morning and evening session (chose from either one, but remain committed to that time slot only).

Morning sessions: 9:30-11:30am

Evening Sessions: 7:00-9:00pm

The final evening session on December 4 will be A Candlelight Memorial Service.

There will be a $30.00 cost that covers materials (two resources for each participant)

This is open to the public so if you know of someone who has had a loved one die and could benefit from such a support group please let them know.

I will be capping each class at a maximum of 10 people.

To sign up for a session please contact Pastor Jan at 780-886-1790 or via email at

Pastor Jan deliberates call.....

 Pastor Jan has been extended a call from Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Fort Qu'appelle, SK to serve as their pastor. Please remember Pastor Jan, his family, the congregations of King of Kings and Our Saviour has he prayerfully deliberates these calls. Part of the deliberations include time in prayer and word, discussions and questions with family, colleagues, and members in order to see clearly as to where God would have him serve.

“You, O LORD, Yourself have called him, For Your precious lambs to care But to prosper in his calling, He the Spirit’s gifts must share. Give him wisdom from above, Fill his heart with holy love; In His weakness Lord, be near him, In his prayers, Good Shepherd, hear him. LSB 681 st.2

Grief Support Group

Pastor Jan is planning to set up a grief support group in the fall. The support group is set up to work at the following:

·         Introduce others who have had similar experiences, thoughts and feeling.
·         Countering the sense of isolation that many experience in our shame-based, mourning-avoiding culture.
·         Provide emotional, physical and spiritual support in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
·         Allow one to explore the many thoughts and feelings about grief in a way that helps to be compassionate with themselves.
·         Encouraging each to not only receive support and understanding for themselves, but also to provide the same to others.
·         Offering opportunities to learn new ways of approaching problems (e.g., the friend or in-law who lacks an understanding of the need to mourn and pushes one to “return to normal”)
·         Helping one trust their fellow human beings and bond again in what for many in grief feels like an unsafe, uncaring world.
·         Giving one a forum to search for meaning in life and death.
·         Providing a supportive environment that can reawaken their zest for life and give them hope for healing.

If you or someone you know would benefit or is interested please consider attending. Times and dates will be posted in a few weeks (early September)

There will be a cost for two resource materials.
