A special ministry helping people deal with grief is being offered in Washington. Deb and Stan McCreedy are leading Grief Share at the First Baptist Church. Pastor Darryl Carr explains the McCreedys have each lost a spouse to cancer and will be helping people deal with the different stages of grief. He adds, the ministry is not just for the loss of a spouse, but for any family member of friend and the program is open to all ages.

The eight-week program begins Thursday, March 5th, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the church. For more information contact the church or Deb McCreedy at 461-6783.
