GriefShare, a 13-week grief recovery program, will be held Tuesdays this fall.

 

GriefShare is a special grief recovery seminar and support group.  GriefShare is built around three components: video seminar, a support group, and a 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.

 

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 in which we work through this loss.  Grief recovery is not simply feeling better, but the ability to find joy in life.  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.  

 

For more information or to pre-register for the fall, contact Joleen by phone, email, or visit the GriefShare website.

GriefShare, a 13-week grief recovery program, will be held Tuesdays this fall.

 

GriefShare is a special grief recovery seminar and support group.  GriefShare is built around three components: video seminar, a support group, and a 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.

 

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 in which we work through this loss.  Grief recovery is not simply feeling better, but the ability to find joy in life.  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.  

 

For more information or to pre-register for the fall, contact Joleen by phone, email, or visit the GriefShare website.
