GriefShare is an established nation-wide program equipped to offer grief support groups. The program is appropriate for people at any level of faith, or affiliated with any denomination, and contains practical information on how to find God’s strength through mourning & grief.
Although it is hosted at Clarks Green Assembly of God Church, the program is not affiliated with the church. You do NOT have to attend Clarks Green Assembly to attend the group that meets there. Additionally, there is no pressure or feelings of obligation to continue week to week - come as you need; leave when you want... which makes it easy for you to 'trial' this program. You may learn more about GriefShare at www.GriefShare.org
SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT
After the funeral, when the cards & flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues, and you feel alone.
Often, friends & family want to help you, but don’t know how. That’s the reason for GriefShare. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.
“Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Matthew 5:4
WHAT TO EXPECT
GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment and will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your long journey through grief. There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience: A Video Seminar, Support Group discussion time, and Journaling in the Workbook.
We understand this is a big step for you. Please feel free to simply ‘test drive’ our group by sitting in on a meeting as a trial run – NO obligation or feeling any pressure to return, if you find the group is not a fit for you. Here’s how to get started…
