Grief Share

March 24 @ 1:30 pm - June 16 @ 3:30 pm

The next series of GriefShare will begin on Tuesday, March 24. The sessions will last about 2 hours each Tuesday.

GriefShare is a 13-week program that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. This program is Christ-centered and includes DVD presentations by respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by small group discussion about what was reviewed. Group discussion also allows participants to talk about their loved ones in a place where emotion and even tears are accepted as part of the grieving process. Participants are encouraged to share their own struggles with grieving as well as sharing meaningful memories of their loved one. However, if you are not comfortable speaking in the group, the information on the DVDs as well as hearing the stories of others in the group who have lost loved ones can be worthwhile in helping you on your journey from mourning to joy.

If you are concerned that you may not be able to attend all 13 sessions, please don’t worry. In addition to the DVD presentations, we will also be using workbooks, which provide valuable information to help you on your journey. If you miss a session, just come to the session the following week. If you want to see the video you missed, just attend that session in the next 13-week cycle.

Your bereavement experience may have been recent or not so recent. You may feel that you are the only one having difficulties dealing with your grief. Many people, including Christians, tend to hold in their grief instead of allowing their grief to do what God intended. Grief is the price we pay for loving someone. Don’t allow fear of what others may think keep you from what could help you. With God’s help and the help of GriefShare, you can process your grief and in time, find joy in your life again. This will not happen overnight, but with the each session you might feel better. I know this because I have completed two 13 week sessions.

GriefShare will be held each week beginning Tuesday, March 24 , from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Cost: $15 for your workbook (scholarships are available)
