GriefShare Program Starting at
Springfield First United Methodist Church
This program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program. Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
GriefShare will be held Tuesday evenings @ 7:00 in the Church library.
Cost: $20.00 if able - covers the cost of materials
Child care: when requested

CASS COUNTY FAIR AUCTION
Cass County Fair 4-H Auction Supporters (family, friends, businesses, alumni) are invited to show support for Cass County 4-Hers by attending the 4-H livestock auction held during the Cass County Fair.
The 4-H Livestock Auction starts at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, August 12, in the livestock barn. Livestock judging awards will be presented to the 4-Hers before the auction at 2:45 p.m. The Cass County 4-H Council clerks this premium sale which is held for market animals only. Each exhibitor is allowed to sell one animal of each species as premium only, meaning dollars per head not cents per pound. Exhibitors retaining ownership will only receive the premium from the sale. Exhibitors of shipped animals will receive the premium from the buyer in addition to the sale proceeds from the buyer of the animal.

Register today to participate and guarantee your spot! $100 golfer registration fee covers ALL COSTS, includes 18 holes of golf, cart fees, box lunch, dinner, awards, and prizes.
