What Is GriefShare?

GriefShare is a faith-based video seminar and support group for people who are grieving the death of someone close to them. At GriefShare, you learn valuable information about recovering from grief and renewing your hope for the future.

There are two programs to choose from, and you are welcome to take one or both, depending on your need.

(1) GriefShare 2019 (13 weeks)

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. GriefShare is facilitated by those who also have lost someone they love.

Workbook topics are: Is This Normal?; Challenges of Grief; The Journey of Grief, Part I; The Journey of Grief, Part II; Grief and Your Relationships; Why?; Guilt and Anger, Complicating Factors; Stuck, Lessons of Grief, Part I; Lessons of Grief, Part II; Heaven; What Do I Live for Now?

The fall program meets weekly for 13 weeks on Sundays, Sept. 8–Dec. 8, 2019, from 3–5 p.m.

Each session stands alone, so you can join at any time. You do not have to attend the sessions in order. Workbooks cost $15; scholarships are available.

(2) Surviving the Holidays

Surviving the Holidays is a two-hour seminar for anyone who has lost a loved one and needs extra support throughout the fall and winter holidays. This seminar will meet on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 10 a.m.–noon.

Like regular GriefShare, this special stand-alone program utilizes a video seminar and group discussion by the facilitators of GriefShare.

Each participant will receive a “Surviving the Holidays” booklet, which has excellent advice to help you through the tough “firsts.” Booklets cost $5; scholarships are available.
