GriefShare is a grief-recovery seminar that provides support for people working their way through the grieving process.

 

GriefShare uses a video seminar series, a workbook and sharing time as participants work through their stages of grief.

 

Grief is the cost of loving someone. It is inevitable that during such a loss we would be deeply impacted, shocked or wounded by it. Grief is the manner or process in which we work through this loss. Grief recovery is not simply feeling better. It is the ability to find joy in life again. It is to treasure the memory of loved ones, to miss them and to live better because of the time in your life that you spent with them.

 

GriefShare is a special grief recovery seminar and support group. GriefShare is built around three components: video seminar, support group and workbook. This program provides tools to guide participants in sorting through their thoughts and emotions and in learning what the Bible says about grief-related topics. All three components are essential for promoting healing.

 

There is a new group session starting at Trinity this fall. The sessions will held on Tuesday nights, starting 9/1/15, at 6:30pm at the Parish Hall at the school for 13 weeks. For more information or to preregister please contact Joleen Hoff at the number or email above.

Popular contemporary Christian artist (and previous The Voice contestant), David Dunn, is being hosted by the WSCC Fireside Cafe in a few short weeks! This is an incredible opportunity for you to see for yourself just what a gifted artist he is. From his own website: "Gravitating toward big beats with piano or synths surrounding them, Dunn’s music is vibrant, dynamic and instantly memorable.

 

To wit, just when someone thinks he/she may have his formula all figured out, David is quick to throw a curve ball with unorthodox production and musicianship that’s still chock full of catchy pop hooks." Trust me, he isn't kidding. VERY catchy indeed. You can his music on YouTube if you'd like a preview. ;)

GriefShare is a grief-recovery seminar that provides support for people working their way through the grieving process.

 

GriefShare uses a video seminar series, a workbook and sharing time as participants work through their stages of grief.

 

Grief is the cost of loving someone. It is inevitable that during such a loss we would be deeply impacted, shocked or wounded by it. Grief is the manner or process in which we work through this loss. Grief recovery is not simply feeling better. It is the ability to find joy in life again. It is to treasure the memory of loved ones, to miss them and to live better because of the time in your life that you spent with them.

 

GriefShare is a special grief recovery seminar and support group. GriefShare is built around three components: video seminar, support group and workbook. This program provides tools to guide participants in sorting through their thoughts and emotions and in learning what the Bible says about grief-related topics. All three components are essential for promoting healing.

 

There is a new group session starting at Trinity this fall. The sessions will held on Tuesday nights, starting 9/1/15, at 6:30pm at the Parish Hall at the school for 13 weeks. For more information or to preregister please contact Joleen Hoff at the number or email above.
