The next GriefShare Support Group will begin on January 20th. Our group is led by Libby Pryor and Susan McAllister who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future. The program features Biblical concepts for healing from your grief. You can clean learn more about GriefShare on their website, www.griefshare.org. Please use the form below to register. Due to COVID and the need to social distance, the class will be limited to 10 people. Face masks will be required.
When my husband (best friend, biggest supporter) passed away my world came tumbling down. I was encouraged by my family to seek out a grief group to join. Grief Share at Mountain Brook Community Church was where I could once a week cry with others, share my feelings and know I was not alone. Grief Share helped ease the pain and reassured me God still loved me! The Grief Share meetings gave me hope. I actually participated in two sessions and felt stronger after each meeting. –Joan Brugge
“I DON’T NEED TO GO TO A GRIEF GROUP” is what I told my daughter after the death of my husband of 42 years. The leaders of this group and the Bible based study made me realize I was wrong! I did need to meet, study and talk about my grief with others walking a similar journey. I think each person’s grief is different, but I know without these leaders of Grief Share and God’s help, I would not be where I am today in my journey. –Carol Smith
A friend recommended GriefShare after I lost my niece to leukemia. I remember my first response was to think, “It’s too soon,” and then later, “I’m doing okay; I don’t really need that.” Thankfully I went anyway because GriefShare has been such a blessing to me. Meeting weekly with others and listening to their stories helped me to feel less isolated and confused about how I was feeling, particularly in dealing with ups and downs I hadn’t anticipated. I learned not to put expectations on myself (or others who have experienced loss) and that it was okay for my way of grieving to look different from others. I am so thankful for those who dedicate their time and energy to these wonderful support groups. –Brooke Everley Nicholson
