GriefShare

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a loved one.

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments and on-location video.

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week's video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling.  Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.


You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a loved one.  Many other life situations bring deep grief, such as a loved one who is dying, estrangement, loss of a loved one to a cult, separation and divorce, loss of custody of a child through divorce and more.  If you are struggling with a loss not due to a death, GriefShare is not designed to meet your grief needs for healing.  We encourage you to inquire about our Stephen Ministry program in finding support for this type of need in your life.
