Who should come. . .who should not:  GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.  We understand that there are others losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or the loss of friends because of a move.  This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions.  We encourage you to ask a pastor, counselor, or church leader for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation.  If you are going through separation or divorce, please consider participating in a DivorceCare program.

When to join a GroupShare group:  You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session.  Each is “self-contained”, so you do not 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 13 week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.
