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. We invite you to join GriefShare, a friendly caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life's most difficult experiences. In this 13 -week class, we listen to others (video experts and testimonies); we listen to each other (sharing in small groups about how we can GROW forward); and we listen to God (guided by scriptures/workbook). Let us walk together through grief toward healing and hope for the future. You are invited to come early for supper, if you desire, beginning at 5:15 pm. Contact Pastor Mary to sign up.

You are encouraged to join us on any week. Sessions are self-contained.
