In consideration of public health concerns related to COVID-19, GriefShare will not be meeting this fall. Our Surviving the Holidays seminar will be held in person on Tuesday, November 17 from 1-3 pm. Find more information here.
Are you suffering from the loss of a loved one?
DBC’s GriefShare Support Group is facilitated by those who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences.
Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm in A-201
Two 14- week Sessions
Two 14-week sessions are offered each year from January to April and August to November. GriefShare is an open group - new participants are welcome at any time during the session. There is no fee for the group, but there is a $20 charge for the workbook. Scholarships are available if there is a need.
Each session opens with a video and is followed with guided discussion questions and sharing time led by an experienced church member who has had personal experience with loss. GriefShare includes videos featuring nationally recognized experts on grief and recovery topics. Topics include, “Is This Normal?”, “Challenges of Grief”, “The Journey of Grief”, “Why?”, “Grief and Your Relationships”, etc.
Surviving the Holidays
In past years, the Christmas holiday season may have been a time of great anticipation and excitement … but this year, the prospect of facing the holidays without your loved one may cause anxiety and dread. Here you can connect with support, encouragement, and advice to survive the holidays.
The seminar features practical suggestions and assurance through video interviews with counselors, grief experts and others who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death. Small group discussions will follow the video. Those who attend will receive a book with over 30 daily readings providing additional insights and ideas on holiday survival. You are welcome to attend regardless of when you experienced the loss of your loved one.
