GriefShare is a special weekly seminar and support group

designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one. 

Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief

and want to help you through the difficult days ahead. 

We know it hurts, and we want to help.

How Does GriefShare Work?

Over 13 weeks, these components help GriefShare participants find help, hope, and healing:

  • Christ-Centered Video Instruction
    Group members meet for 13 weekly sessions. During a typical meeting, they view a video about grief issues featuring leading Christian grief recovery experts and the stories of people who have healed from the death of a loved one.

  • Group Discussion
    After the video, participants discuss what they’ve seen. They also share the challenges they’re facing and the victories they’re experiencing.

  • Personal Workbook Study
    Each GriefShare participant also receives a workbook. Its daily Bible study helps them discover what God says about their situation. During group discussion, participants are encouraged to share what they’re learning from their Bible study.
