Since 2002, the Grace Moore Kimata Center has been offering support to members of the community experiencing the loss of a loved one. Starting each January and June, our church offers a 13-session grief support group based on the GriefShare program. We also facilitate a one-time session "Surviving the Holidays" in November. These Thursday morning sessions are free and open to everyone.

The Kimata Center was founded by Paul Kimata, a member of our church who struggled after the passing of his wife Grace. The mission of the Kimata Center is to provide faith-based support for those who are suffering from the grief of losing a loved one and want a place to learn about, normalize, and share the grieving process in community.
