Your JOURNEY from Mourning to JOY

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. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who

understand what you are going through and want to help. GriefShare's resources help you recover from your loss and

look forward to rebuilding your life. There are thousands of GriefShare grief-support groups meeting across the country

and around the world.  This one would like to help you.

Our new GriefShare semester is getting underway and meets on Saturday afternoons from 2 to 4:00 pm.

The course consists of 13 sessions. The final session will be followed by a Celebration/Share night.

Our GriefShare group meets in the Parlor on our Main Campus. Workbook cost is $15 with scholarship assistance available for need.

From Mourning to joy

Bradley & Alison's Story

Bradley and Alison lost five babies their first four years of marriage. Alison lost her father at age 19. Bradley lost his grandparents, with whom he was very close. They both have lost beloved pets, even having to make the choice to put one to sleep. Bradley and Alison are no strangers to loss and the pain it brings.

Bradley and Alison began a life of existing rather than living. Though they could function, the pain was just below the surface and came out in various ways through the years. That is just how life was until they went through GriefShare.

GriefShare was a safe place to relate with others going through what Bradley and Alison had been feeling for years. The discussion, combined with the video teachings and homework exercises, put words to their emotions and provided a plan of action to overcome the suffering they were feeling. GriefShare also allowed them to work through, and with, their faith in Christ, which had been tested to the max by their losses.

They know about the emotions of grief and want to help others work through these. They have experienced those emotions that can make you feel like you can’t go on. They know what it feels like to be stuck, watching everyone around you move on with their lives, feeling like no matter what you do, it is just not enough to break through and feel normal again. All that changed when they attended GriefShare.

Attending all the sessions and participating in the group discussions brought them out of their depression. It gave them a new hope for the future with the ability to think clearly for the first time in a long time. They desire the same for others and look forward to helping those dealing with grief through the upcoming sessions of GriefShare. Bradley and Alison want you to know it can get better. And they invite you to join them for GriefShare to see for yourself.
