  • Loss of a loved one
  • Hospitalization and recovery
  • Divorce or separation
  • Loneliness or discouragement
  • Unemployment or a job crisis
  • A chronic or a terminal illness
  • Birth, adoption, miscarriage, or infertility

GriefShare is a faith based support group and features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics.


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 that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. That’s the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.
