About Griefshare

GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly for 13 weeks. 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. This is a safe and welcoming place where our leaders understand the difficult emotions of grief and will walk with you as you experience God’s comfort in the midst of your loss.

The GriefShare Experience

There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience:



Encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts.



Small group discussion centered around the video content and the workbook.



Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.

Who can come?

Anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one is welcome to attend no matter how long it has been since the loss.

Video Session Descriptions

At each session a 30 minute video compliments the material in the workbook and tells the stories of people who also have gone through similar grieving experiences and leading grief recovery expert featured content.
