WHAT IS GRIEFSHARE?
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. It is a 13-week, Christ-centered, biblically based support group seminar. A grieving person can join at any time during the 13 weeks. Each session shows a video presentation followed by small group discussion about the video. The GriefShare videos present experts, ministers, and Christian counselors discussing grief and recovery subjects helpful to people in grief. Real people share their stories of what has helped them deal with the pain of losing a family member or friend through death. During the week between meetings, group members complete a daily Bible study and practical exercises to help them heal from grief. GriefShare is for people who have lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend through death.
Meeting Monday evenings from 6-7:30pm starting January 9th.
We will be meeting at Wildwood Church in Room 200 (enter the east double doors by the Fireside Room)

Q: Who will come to our GriefShare group?
A: GriefShare will minister to people within your church and throughout your community who are grieving the death of a loved one or friend. It’s likely that many of the people who will come to your GriefShare group will come from outside your church, and they may not have an active spiritual life or be followers of Christ. GriefShare represents a tremendous outreach and evangelism tool for your church!
Q: Is GriefShare appropriate for other types of losses?
A: GriefShare is specifically designed for people who have experienced the loss of a loved one or friend through death. Other losses, such as the loss of a job, the death of a pet, divorce, and similar major life events, while significant, are not the focus of GriefShare.
Q: We already have a bereavement ministry. Why do we need GriefShare?
A: Most churches do a wonderful job of caring for grieving people from their congregation in the immediate days surrounding a death and funeral. GriefShare is designed to extend ministry into the long months that follow, when people around the griever have returned to their normal, busy lives
