GriefShare program to begin in Feb.
St. Paul’s Evangelical Church will present 13 weeks of grief supporting seminars beginning Thursday evening, Feb. 22, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the parish hall (social room), 401 Fifth St., Marietta.
GriefShare is a very sound Christian ministry, Christ centered, biblically based.
It is a network of thousands of grief recovery support groups meeting worldwide.
It is in over 12,000 churches worldwide and growing every day.
When you have lost a loved one, church, family and friends do a wonderful job of caring for grieving people in the immediate days surrounding a death and funeral.
A few days after the funeral, most of the people surrounding the griever return to their daily routines. This is reality! But the griever needs ongoing support and encouragement, lasting months, or more likely much longer. That’s the reason for GriefShare.
The GriefShare program provides both in reach and outreach for churches.
Those within your congregation who experience a loss (in-reach)
People throughout your community who are grieving (outreach)
GriefShare’s Content Is: Comfort, Answers, and Hope.
While it is ideal for group members to attend all 13 seminars, each weekly seminar is designed to be “open”, meaning a person can begin attending at any time. Members will find comfort, answers, and hope in every session.
GriefShare is nondenominational and features biblical concepts for healing from your grief. It takes time to heal, and grief has no timetable. GriefShare is designed to guide you in the months and years ahead.
