How GriefShare Works

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.  If you've lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you've probably found there are not may people who understand the deep hurt you feel.  This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you've never faced before.


Our GriefShare group meets weekly, on Friday nights from 7:00pm - 8:30pm, to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  This 13 week course starts on March 10th.  The cost of the personal book study is $15.  Please sign up in our fellowship hall or call us at (330)773-7884 if you would like to attend.

Video Seminar with Experts

Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects.  These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.

Support Groups

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week's video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal Study and Reflection

During the week you will have opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling.  Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
