It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. That is the reason for GriefShare.

GriefShare is a special Biblically-based seminar and support group for people grieving the death of someone close.  GriefShare groups are held through churches worldwide.  This group is sponsored by the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and is led by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.

Each GriefShare meeting includes a video, featuring top experts on grief recovery, and also people who have experienced losses similar to your loss.  After the video, there is discussion in small groups about what you have viewed.  You will have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences, and also share your own.  A GriefShare workbook assists you with note taking, journaling, and information on your grief journey.

You may begin attending the GriefShare group at any time during the 13-week series. Click here to sign-up for the class.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin.  You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next cycle and view any of the videos that you have not seen.

A sample of a GriefShare video is below.

You are not alone in your grief. Come join us beginning on Wednesday, February 14, from 7 to 9 p.m. in The Parlor (last class will be May 16, 2018). Brochures are located in the church office.
