GriefShare

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Our goal is to a create a space in which you can talk openly to other persons who are grieving the death of a loved one. Each week, for 13 weeks, we will learn one self contained lesson focused on a piece of grieving. Each person will have a workbook of their own to write down reflections and there will be time for dialog, prayer and support from each other.

For more information please see https://www.griefshare.org/about
