How GriefShare works
GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.
This 13-week program provides support through the grieving process, offering encouragement and help after the loss of a spouse, a child, a parent, family member, or a friend.
Who should come … who should not
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. We understand that there are other losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or the loss of friends because of a move. This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions. We encourage you to ask a pastor, counselor, or church leader for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation. If you are going through separation or divorce, please consider participating in a DivorceCare program.
When to join a GriefShare group
You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.
Griefshare will begin at 7pm on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at the Manhasset Campus. The Winter/Spring session will run from January 16 - April 17. There will be no meeting on March 5 because of the Lenten Reflection service.
There is a one-time registration fee of $15 which covers the cost of the mandatory study guide. If you already have the study guide, there is no cost to attend. Childcare is available for $5/child per session payable at the time of attendance. Scholarships are available. If cost is an issue, please contact Dirk Tucker at .
