GriefShare is a ministry to those grieving the death of a family member or friend. The 13-week classes begin mid-January and mid-August, though you are welcome to begin attending at any time. Classes meet on Sunday afternoons from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in Room 210.

You’ll find a friendly, nonthreatening atmosphere to learn from the biblically based material. Each week a video seminar features top experts on grief and recovery topics. In small groups we discuss what was presented in the videos and how grief is currently affecting our lives. Though participating in group discussion is encouraged, you have the freedom to simply listen. Further personal study is encouraged with the help of the GriefShare: Your Journey from Mourning to Joy workbook, which includes exercises containing Bible passages relevant to the emotions, struggles, and questions grieving people ask. It also provides practical steps to take on your path to healing.

In addition, each November a special two-hour event, Surviving the Holidays, provides helpful tools for coping with grief during the holiday season.

All group leaders have experienced grief and are successfully rebuilding their lives. They will walk with you on your journey to find hope for the future. To register or obtain more information click HERE.
