“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”—Psalm 147:3
GriefShare is a friendly, caring support group for people who have experienced the loss of a spouse, child, family member, or friend. You don’t have to go through life’s most difficult experiences alone. Grieving is a process. GriefShare group is here for you.
Losing a loved one can be confusing, leaving you feeling alone. You have many questions about things you may have never faced before. It can be difficult to find people who understand the deep hurt you feel. GriefShare can help you by providing support and connection as you work towards rebuilding your life and healing from your loss.
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. While there are many types of losses people experience that can cause grief (loss of job, divorce, estranged family members, a move), these types of loss are not discussed in GriefShare.
If you are experiencing loss in other areas and are looking for support, reach out to us here.
GriefShare is a 13-week group session offered at scheduled times throughout the year. Whenever you choose to attend, you will find support and encouragement. You will also get access to a workbook and any resources and videos that have been discussed or shown in past groups.
The cost is $25 and covers the workbook.
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you move toward rebuilding your life and healing from your loss. Topics include…
What do I live for now?
Grief and your relationships
GriefShare group starts by watching a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery. These videos can feature interviews with experts in the field, real-life stories, dramatizations/reenactments, and on-location videos.
After watching the video together, you and other group members will discuss what was in the video and how it relates to what is going on in your life and theirs.
You will have an opportunity to study the grieving process using your workbook during the week. Your workbook will help you journal to sort out your emotions. Your group will discuss workbook questions and personal reflection comments the following week.
Most people quickly feel comfortable and accepted in their GriefShare group. They find comfort in knowing others share their feelings and understand the hurt and loss they have experienced.
GriefShare leaders have the heart to help those who have experienced loss begin to heal. They understand the feeling of grief and loss because most have also experienced it. They provide encouraging examples of the healing and restoration that can occur as an outgrowth of deep grief.
At Abundant Life, we offer 2 times for GriefShare in the fall (September) and the winter (January). Sign up for the times that work best for you.
