After the funeral. when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. But your grief continues, and you feel alone.

Often, friends and family want to help you, but don't know how. That's the reason for GriefShare.

GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly, and is a warm, caring environment. Guests will come to see the group as an "oasis" on the long journey through grief. There are three key parts to your GriefShare experience:

  • Video seminar

Encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts

  • Support group

Small group discussion about the weekly video content

  • Workbook

Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly.

The group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives.

Members understand how guests feel because they've been in the same place. Members will walk with guests on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.

GriefShare is a network of more than 15,000 churches worldwide equipped to offer grief support groups. The program

is nondenominational and features biblical concepts for healing from your grief.
