Anyone who has experienced the death of a family member or friend is invited to attend our GriefShare series. GriefShare is a nondenominational, biblical support group that focuses on helping people who are dealing with a loved one’s death. Each DVD session features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories, followed by small group discussion about the topics presented (with workbook support). The workbook also provides a brief daily Bible study.
At each GriefShare session you will find encouragement and help in grieving the death of your loved one. No matterthe cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and how to cope with the normal emotions that come when grieving a death. You will learn valuable information on facing life situations, and you’ll gain renewed hope for the future. These sessions are open to any adult regardless of whether your experience is recent or not so recent.
The group is led by individuals who have personally experienced grief due to a loved one’s death. Each leader is trained in facilitating a GriefShare support group. A $20 registration fee includes materials. Please don’t let this fee keep you from attending, we can cover the fee in case of a hardship. Information about the weekly topics can be found on the GriefShare website at www.griefshare.org. While you are on the website, we encourage you to sign up for the free daily email encouragements. You will find them informative and comforting. For additional information and to register, contact Ron Chan at (530) 672-1898 or call our church office at (530) 677-9536.
