Grief Share

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

That’s the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close.  This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.  Each GriefShare session includes a video seminar and group discussion.  A GriefShare workbook assists you with note-taking, journaling, and grief study.  The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief, and real-life stories of people who have experienced loss.

You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session.  Each is “self-contained,” so you don’t have to attend in sequence.  You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin.  You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.

GriefShare at Wilshire Avenue is held on Tuesday nights beginning September 12, 2017 at 6:30. Call the church office for more information: 714-526-2265.
