PROGRAM GUIDES GRIEF
The St. James GriefShare Support Ministry is a nondenominational, Christ-centered, biblically based curriculum that conveys hope and restoration. Each week our "GriefShare" group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. Session topics include "Is This Normal?" "The Challenges of Grief," "Grief and Your Relationships," "Why?" and "Guilt and Anger." After viewing the video, we spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week's video seminar and what is going on in our lives. During the week between sessions, group members complete a daily Bible study and practical exercises in a workbook to help them heal from grief. Anyone is welcome to begin attending the "GriefShare"group at any session. Each is "self-contained," so you do not have to attend in sequence. We have found that all who participate will find encouragement and help whenever they begin. We also extend an invitation for "alumnus" of previous "GriefShare" sessions to join us again as the curriculum has been enhanced and new material and grief experts have been added. There is a nominal fee of $15.00 which includes a workbook, weekly refreshments, and other items; scholarships are available. Also, if there is someone you know who might also benefit from "GriefShare", please consider inviting him or her to accompany you. We look forward to your presence and participation.
Join us Thursday, April 20th at 6:00 p.m. for an orientation session. The 11-week GriefShare session begins on Thursday, April 27th at 6:00 p.m. "GriefShares" goal is to provide comfort and support for those grieving the death of a loved one.
