Common Bond

Our goal is to offer grieving mothers a safe place to meet with other mothers who know, understand and feel the depth of your pain. Having experienced one of our meetings, you will come to realize the meaning of the name "Common Bond".  We, as grieving mothers, have a bond that no other can share.  We offer love, understanding and friendship as you grieve the death of your child of any age, from any cause.  


meetings consist of

  • Sharing the lives of our child

  • Encouraging one another

  • Expressing our emotions freely

  • Working together through the grief

  • Viewing and discussing lesson material


Meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at Newport Assembly of God Church.
