your journey from mourning to joy

The care you need…information you can trust.

After the funeral, when the cards and 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 and family want to help you, but don’t know how. That’s the reason we have 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.

About GriefShare:
GriefShare is a network of 12,000+ churches worldwide, equipped to offer grief support groups.

What to expect:
GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly. You’ll find it to be a warm, caring environment. GriefShare becomes an “oasis” on your long journey through grief.

There are three key parts to the GriefShare experience:

  • Video Seminar
    Encouraging information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts.

  • Support Group
    Small group discussion about the weekly video content.

  • Work Book
    Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.

Group members describe their GriefShare experience:

  • “A safety net when my world was literally falling apart.”

  • “The permission I needed to let grief happen.”

  • “I saw my grief so much more clearly.”

  • “I was able to see that I was not alone.”

  • “You find out that you are not crazy.”

  • “A turning point in my life.”

  • “I thought it might be depressing, but honestly, it felt good to know that I am not alone.”

  • “I would be a mess if it wasn’t for GriefShare.”

  • “I felt so safe and loved.”

  • “It saved my life.”

  • “Group members quickly became family.”

  • “GriefShare has given me hope.”
