GriefShare: Grief Recovery Support Group

GriefShare is a biblically based, Christ centered support group for people who have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend through death. In each session we watch a DVD with experts, ministers and Christian counselors discussing grief and recovery subjects, followed by small group discussion about the video. In addition, real people share their stories of how they deal with the pain of losing a family member or friend through death.

Participants can join at any time during the rotating cycle. Meets every Sunday from 3:30pm - 5:30pm in Room 500. There is a one time $20 registration fee which covers the cost of printed materials & weekly refreshments.

Leader Team: Pat Rusheen. For information on Grief Share Ministries visit www.griefshare.org

Divorce Care
