GriefShare – An Educational Support Program
Mt. Bethel UMC will offer GriefShare, a 13-week program based on a Christ-centered perspective, on Thursdays from 7-8:30 pm beginning May 3 and ending July 26. You can begin attending at any point during the series to complete the remainder of the sessions. The GriefShare series can also be repeated again if you think it would be beneficial for you.
The weekly meetings begin with a professionally produced DVD featuring individuals who are experiencing grief as well as grief experts who can help you understand more clearly your grief journey. These DVDs provide a springboard to talk about the questions, concerns, issues, and feelings grievers are experiencing on their grief journey in an educationally supportive and helpful setting.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity if you have experienced a significant loss including that of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, or friend for which you are presently grieving. Or, if not grieving yourself, please encourage someone you know who would benefit from these meetings to give GriefShare a try.
The weekly meetings are led by Rev. Kim McGarr.
