Thursdays at 3:00-5:00pm or 6:30-8:30pm.
GriefShare offers help and encouragement to anyone after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend. This nondenominational, 13-week program features biblical concepts for healing from your grief. Now offered at over 13,000 churches worldwide, GriefShare is led by caring people who have experienced grief and successfully rebuilt their lives.
Your GriefShare experience will have three key parts:
- Video seminar featuring leading grief recovery experts
- Support group to discuss the weekly video content
- Workbook for journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics.
The weekly seminar topics
- Is This Normal?
- Challenges of Grief
- The Journey of Grief
- Grief and Your Relationships
- Guilt and Anger
- Complicating Factors
- Lessons of Grief
- What Do I live for Now?
You are welcome to begin attending our GriefShare group at any point. Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You may pick up any sessions you missed in our next 13-week cycle. At First Presbyterian Church of Oceanside, we offer GriefShare three times each year: January-April, May-July, and September-November.
