In the spring we shared about an idea to recognize a uniquely common struggle that 1 in 4 women experience: infertility, pregnancy loss, and infant loss. We have created a guide on how to lead what is called a Hannah Service.*

A Hannah Service is an experience that gives space and opportunity through readings, singing, sharing, and commemorating activities to honor the losses and grieve the experiences from infertility, pregnancy loss, infant loss, and medical diagnoses that prevent pregnancy. This would be a meaningful program to host at your corps and share with other churches in your community. Click the button below to download the guide, available in English and Spanish. Use a Facebook event to promote your Hannah Service, share the link with local pastors and colleagues and be clear that this is a public event. To truly partner with our churches invite female pastors and leaders to participant in specific program elements. 

We look forward to see how this brings healing and spurs ideas for more support events and groups for various losses and griefs we experience in life that need space for processing and healing.
