TUES ♦ 6:15 PM

Do you or does someone you know need encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend?

After the cards and flowers have stopped coming, friends and family return to their normal lives. But grief continues and loneliness sets in. Offer to attend this group with someone who is hurting and reluctant to attend alone.

Have you lost a spouse or loved one in the past and would like to share your story with others that are reeling from a recent loss?

Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and successfully rebuilt their lives. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future. There are three parts to your GriefShare experience— an encouraging, information-packed video featuring leading grief recovery experts, small group discussion and a workbook for journaling and personal study exercise that reinforce the weekly session topics.

GriefShare meets from 6:15 – 7:45 PM in Classroom D and continues every Wednesday through April 2.

Please register using the form below or call the church office (941-778-0414). The cost is $15 for the workbook (scholarships available).

GriefShare offers help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend. You are welcome to begin attending the program at any point. Each session is self-contained.
