GriefShare is a 13-week video-educational program developed by Church Initiative. It gives information about the grieving process within the framework of Biblical beliefs. Participants in GriefShare obtain an understanding of grief firsthand from people interviewed by the video leaders. The videos are down to earth and yet highly informative. On-site discussion after viewing the videos gives the participants a chance to digest the information within their own context of grief.
Here is a list of the weekly topics:
1 Is This Normal?
2 Challenges of Grief
3 The Journey of Grief - (Part 1)
4 The Journey of Grief - (Part 2)
5 Grief and Your Relationships
7 Guilt and Anger
8 Complicating Factors
10 Lessons of Grief - (Part 1)
11 Lessons of Grief - (Part 2)
13 What Do I Live for Now?
When to Begin?
You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare group at any point. Each session is "self-contained" so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in our next 13-week cycle.
GriefShare Sessions Starting Soon
Ascension Lutheran Church’s GriefShare seminar/support group is starting two new cycles of group meetings soon. Sessions will meet on Wednesday evenings starting at 6p.m. January 6, 2017. GriefShare is a 13-week seminar and support group for individuals grieving the loss of someone close. Each session includes prayer, a video seminar, and group discussion. A GriefShare workbook assists you with note-taking, journaling, and grief study. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery and real life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours. Call Ken or Judy Nolen at 744-2123 to register for the class or with questions about the program. The only cost is $15 for the workbook and partial scholarships are available. You are welcome to join at any session. Grieving individuals from outside the Ascension congregation are welcome to attend.
