GriefShare | Begins August 5 | 6:30p | Central Assembly

GriefShare is a friendly, caring support group that will walk beside you through some of life’s most difficult experiences. If you’ve lost a child, spouse, family member, or friend, you may feel overwhelmed with grief. Maybe you’ve lost a job, good health, financial stability, or safety after a trauma. You may be experiencing grief as well. GriefShare can help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

The 12-week GriefShare program will begin Wednesday, August 5, at 6:30pm and meet each Wednesday night through November 4. Each session will include a video featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects followed by a time of prayer and sharing. A companion workbook is $15. If you’d like to enroll, e-mail Stefanie or call the church office.
