Survivors of Suicide Loss (SOSL) 

Tuesday, 6:00pm - 8:00pm | 2154 Loop 337 New Braunfels TX 78130

The group will be a safe place to share your grief journey and pain in the loss of your loved one due to suicide. We will build a community with those left behind after a suicide loss that share this common bond of loss trusting that God’s Word is sovereign in teaching us how to heal with His love. 

This group is sponsored by the Oakwood Counseling Center with Eva Lott, Director, and was born out of a need from others who walked this journey in the GriefShare program that is sponsored by the OCC. Terry and Mary Dean Richards prayerfully considered sharing their testimony and leading this group to build a community specific to loss by suicide. 

Here you will find compassionate, caring people who will travel alongside you on this journey. They have walked this journey ahead of you and will be there to guide and support those attending with a book study, “Melissa: A Father’s Lessons from a Daughter’s Suicide” by Frank Page. 

Length: 13 weeks Cost: $20 per person 

Tuesday Evenings - 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

(Mens Class) Fear and Trembling - Monday Evening

Monday, 6:00pm - 8:30pm | 2154 Loop 337 New Braunfels TX 78130

Study by Dr. R.C. Sproul. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Prov. 1:7), but often we do fear the Lord as we ought because we forget how He is revealed in Scripture. We tend to view God as a heavenly grandfather, not as one who is a consuming fire. We think God is like us, when instead He is utterly holy. Until we understand who God is, we will not have the right attitude toward Him. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul helps us to understand who God really is, showing us the One who is holy.
