Have you lost a loved one? Are you or someone you know struggling with this loss? GriefShare is a Christian program to help deal with the loss of a loved one due to death. Grief can be paralyzing. One might think that after time, grief just fades away, but it doesn’t. It can hit you like a wave even years after the loss. GriefShare is a 13-week program that teaches about grief, offers suggestions for how to deal with the struggles, and shares what the Bible says about grief. One would think that everyone just sits around a table and cries the entire session. How depressing that would be! Who needs that? That is not what GriefShare is like. Yes, there may be tears shed. We have extra soft Kleenex for those moments! But it is so much more. There is no judgment when feelings and fears are expressed. Friendships are formed quickly and participants support each other wholeheartedly. Tears quickly turn to laughter. If someone walked past the chapel during GriefShare, they may hear so much laughter that they can’t believe it is a grief support group. God’s presence is surely in this place. Don’t let the fear of the unknown stop you from attending.
*Please note: GriefShare will not meet if Galesburg CUSD #205 is closed due to weather. The missed session will be rescheduled for the following week.
