GriefShare is a 13 week support group and features biblical teaching on grief and recovery for those who have lost a loved one to death. Each GriefShare session includes a video seminar and group discussion, along with a workbook for note taking, journaling and additional grief study. Most importantly God's promises in scripture throughout each session will encourage you and give you hope as you grieve. Whether your loss is recent or from previous years, it can still hurt and be difficult to work through. GriefShare can help. * You can join the group any time during the 13 week period, including a bonus session ‘Surviving the Holidays’ prior to Thanksgiving. * Child care is available from 3 to 12 years old. *Check with the church office for cancelations due to weather.
