Living Forward is The Waymart Church's ministry to widows and widowers who have experienced the loss of their spouse.

In the season of life that widowhood brings, our ministry provides warm fellowship and support, plus a shared understanding and

comfort in meeting with others on the same journey.


We are a group where sharing, laughter, great times 

and occasional tears happen.

We are a vibrant group that enjoys our monthly planned gatherings and events that find us either in homes for fellowship dinners, 

or enjoying outside events and activities.



'Living Forward' with hope, one day at a time, together, encouraged by God's grace and strength is our goal.
If you are a widow or widower, we'd love to have you join us!



Our Living Forward 'Shuffle' is a once a month gathering at a local restaurant

for a warm time together for food, fellowship and conversation.

It's a great way for us to get to know each other better as we share our lives,

as well as enjoy laughter around the table!


Our Living Forward Events are always fun and varied! Whether a concert in the park on a warm summer night, an horse and carriage ride, gathering in a home for a themed evening or movie night,

a tour & picnic at local park, a pontoon boat ride at Camp Ladore

or some other together event.


We also have poignant times of sharing about our lives,

our journey in widowhood, and fond memories of our spouses,

all the while trusting God for His grace and strength to carry on.

Living Forward Friends uphold one another in prayer through our
monthly Prayer Request and Praise email,
where listed prayer needs and praises are shared
for us to bring to the Lord in prayer.

Our Living Forward Directory is our way of staying connected.

We would love for you to come join us and get to know us at any time. 

Then, when you feel comfortable and are ready to share your information with us

we can add you to our Living Forward Directory,

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort
we ourselves receive from God.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
