Who is Anchored Hope for?
Anchored Hope is for women who are grieving the loss of a child through death or miscarriage, or who are experiencing infertility.
Do you have to be a member of Walnut Creek Church to attend?
No. We encourage people to invite any family or friends who are grieving in this way to come try out Anchored Hope.
Can you begin attending Anchored Hope at any time throughout the year?
Yes. There is no registration required and no formal sequence in curriculum. Each week is a new opportunity to learn from God’s Word and share with other women.
How is Anchored Hope different than GriefShare?
GriefShare is designed for people grieving the death of a family member or friend and provides 13 weeks of structured curriculum. While GriefShare has been extremely helpful for mothers who have experienced the loss of a child, we recognize that the time commitment may not be feasible for all women. Additionally, Anchored Hope is specifically designed around the loss of a child and infertility, which leads to topics of discussion that may not be appropriate for all participants in GriefShare.
