• Griefshare SUPPORT GROUP

    BEGINNING April 17 @ 10:00 am

    A support group to help you move through the grief process

    A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way. 

    The program meets on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in our office conference room.

    The next 13-week session will begin on April 17 at 10:00 a.m. and will continue into the summer.

GriefShare Support Program

The GriefShare support program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching focusing on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. We use the GriefShare DVD seminar series presented by nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people. Past participants have related how helpful the information and discussions were to them. Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to hide their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from taking advantage of what could help you.

Confidentiality is very much a part of this program. Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. This grief support program offers encouragement, comfort, and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. There is a process in recognizing the symptoms of being stuck in grief, and how to work through the bondage you may experience with certain emotions. This learning and sharing experience will deliver valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.

The PCPC GriefShare group began a new 13-week on January 10, 2024. The projected end date is April 3. They meet in the office conference room.
