Your Journey from Mourning to Joy… FACING TOMORROW… 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’s the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is led 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. During the small group discussion time, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences, and share your own.
Visit the GriefShare national website. For a list of topics that will be covered, click here. You may begin attending the GriefShare groups at any time. Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement, comfort and care to help you heal from your loss.
GriefShare is offered on Mondays from 6:30-8:30pm at Fair Haven Church in room 606 (enter Door A). Cost is $20, which includes a workbook and can be paid at the first class attended. Scholarships are available.Childcare is available for ages 0-5.
