Grief Support

GRIEF SUPPORT

Provides to our church and the community caring support for students and adults grieving the death of a loved one.

GriefShare is offered for adults and SHIFT is for students, grades 3-12. Both provide safe environments, are 13 weeks in length and are staffed by compassionate leaders who have sustained similar losses. Both programs run simultaneously on Monday evenings.

All sessions provide practical helps, support, guidance, and encouragement. GriefShare provides large and small group support with practical video sessions. SHIFT also has large and small group activities and uses art projects to support the curriculum to promote learning.

“Grief Share saved my life!! It was a God send after my John died. I was so hungry for the word and for comfort. God has held my hand every step of the way through my grief. I now have a group of widows to have dinner with monthly. The ladies and I can call each other to talk and to help each other. We do know how each other feels. I recommend Grief Share.”

“It helped me work through a lot of my grief—some that was stuffed deep down for many years.”

“I feel like myself again. I’ve experienced less depression and my thoughts are much less “foggy.” I have more energy and am interested in the things & people around me.”

“Provided a safe environment of like-minded persons to share with.”

“Helped me to understand grief from more than one perspective.”

“I think a big part of grief recovery is getting to share with others. “

“Made me know that I can move forward. Not forget, but love your memories.”

“It gave me my joy back.”

“Very comforting to be with other people who understand this experience. I feel better prepared to deal with my feelings.”

“It was a safe place to address & deal with my grief each week. The volunteers went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed, cared for, not alone.”

“I thought I had resolved certain feelings and when in reality I hadn’t. GriefShare made me realize its OK to feel certain hidden emotions.”

“Allowed me to grieve all my losses.”

“You always feel free to share because you feel comfortable with the other members.”

“My life has changed in the past year beyond belief. I was taught to read more scriptures and exercise my faith and trust in God. My personal relationship with the Lord has strengthened!”
