I would like to invite you to our grief support ministry, sponsored by First Baptist Church Gallatin. This is a positive, uplifting, caring group in which you can learn how to deal with the emotions and challenges that come when a loved one dies.
Please feel free to print or forward the information below to others who are grieving the death of a family member or friend. They too are welcome and will benefit by joining us.

First Baptist Church Gallatin GRIEFSHARE GROUP BEGINS September 1, 2021.
Anyone who has experienced the death of a family member or friend is invited to attend our new GriefShare series. The sessions are held each week on Wednesday nights via Zoom.

GriefShare is a nondenominational, biblical support group that focuses on helping people who are dealing with a loved one’s death. Each DVD session features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories, followed by small
group discussion about the topics presented (with workbook support). The workbook also provides a brief daily Bible study.

At each GriefShare session you will find encouragement and help in grieving the death of your loved one. No matter the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and how to cope with the normal emotions that come when grieving a death. You will learn valuable information on facing life situations, and you’ll gain renewed hope for the future.
These sessions are open to any adult regardless of whether your experience is recent or not so recent. The group is led by Dr. Karen Wilkerson and a team of other experienced team members who have personally experienced grief due to a loved one’s death. She and her team are trained in facilitating a GriefShare support group.
The $25 registration fee includes materials. (Please don’t allow this fee to keep you from attending; we do have a few scholarships available.) Information about the weekly topics can be found on the GriefShare website at www.griefshare.org. While you are on the website, we encourage you to sign up for the free daily email encouragements. You will find them informative and comforting.
For additional information and to register, contact Dr. Karen Wilkerson at 615-485-0153 or wilkersonkb@gmail.com or call the church office
at 615-452-8189.
