The next 13-week session begins on August 22, 2017 at 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall.
GriefShare is a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.
Each GriefShare session includes a video seminar and group discussion. A GriefShare workbook assists you with note-taking, journaling and grief study. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief and real-life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours.
You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage as a slave to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
We also offer “Surviving the Holidays” which is a helpful, encouraging and supportive seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death. The seminar features practical suggestions and reassurance through video interviews with counselors, grief experts and other people who have experienced the holidays after the loss of their loved one.
We have now expanded this ministry to include support for children and youth. For more information on GriefShare Ministry, contact Karen Haley (434-429-1932).
