GRIEFSHARE: GRIEF RECOVERY SUPPORT GROUP
Time & Location
About The Event
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 there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
GriefShare groups meet weekly for 90 minutes to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
- Video seminar with experts
- Support group discussion with focus
- Personal study and reflection
The videos feature experts, ministers and Christian counselors discussing grief and recovery subjects helpful to people experiencing grief. Everyday people who have gone through the grieving process also share their stories of what has helped them deal with the pain of losing a loved one through death. In addition, attendees have an opportunity to discuss their own grief with one another and may study a daily Bible devotional with practical exercises to help them move through the grieving process.
Who Should or Should Not Come
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.
We understand that there are other losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or the loss of friends because of a move. This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions. We encourage you to speak with Pastor B.J. for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation.
