We welcome and encourage any adult who is struggling with pain associated with the death of a loved one to join us and experience the understanding, acceptance and support that this non-denominational ministry provides.

Our groups typically average between 7-10 participants, consisting of both men and women of varying ages. Some are just starting their journey of grief while others may be struggling with a past loss or losses, even those having occurred many years ago.

A one-time registration fee includes a lessons resource guide and other materials. We focus on a single topic each week so you can join us at any time during the series. Many also find it helpful to attend the series or individual sessions a second time, without any additional cost, as they move through the healing process.

GriefShare is a component of Calvary Fellowship's Community of Care supports for individuals and families struggling with one or more of a variety of life issues.

These may include, depending on time of year:
-- Other Care Ministries series such as DivorceCare for those who are experiencing separation or divorce; Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University for those wishing to obtain control of their finances; Job-Seekers for the unemployed and underemployed; Parents with Prodigals that meets the second and fourth Mondays only, for those needing resources and support to aid with rebellious children of all ages, including those with mental health and substance abuse issues; and prayer opportunities.

Further information on Care Ministries is at

Other activities for adults and children are shown on the church website at, with inquiries at or (610) 363-7171.

Further information and requested registration for GriefShare may be obtained from Bob VanArsdale, Care Pastor, at or (610) 363-7171.
