GriefShare is a Biblically based grief recovery support group where you can find help and healing for the hurt of losing a loved one. Led by trained lay leaders who have experienced significant losses in their own life, GriefShare is a place to find hope for the future after the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend along with others who understand the deep hurt you feel.
With the nicer weather coming, people are often hesitant to commit to a twelve-week series, so the leaders of GriefShare are offering an abbreviated series. There is no charge for the series. GriefShare “Light” will be offered upon request. Anyone grieving due to the death of a loved one is welcome. Individual appointments are also available by appointment by calling Pastor Susie.
For additional information, please call (952) 474-0858 or email Pastor Susan Thompson. You can also visit the GriefShare website: www.griefshare.org.
