GriefShare meets every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the church Library located on the 2nd floor across the hall from the Sanctuary balcony. After the funerals, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues and you feel alone. Often, friends and family want to help you, but don't know how. That's the reason for GriefShare. GriefShare is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. They understand how you feel because they've been in the same place. They will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future. GriefShare is a network of 12,000+ churches worldwide equipped to offer grief support groups. The program is non-denominational and features biblical concepts for healing from your grief. Learn more about GriefShare at www.griefshare.org. GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly. You'll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an "oasis" on your long journey through grief. You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare group at any point. Each session is "self-contained", so you do not have to attend in sequence.
