This group of caring individuals reaches out to members of the church during trying circumstances including difficult life transitions, sick loved ones, an employment crisis, and much more.

Grief takes more than TIME to heal. GriefShare is a grief recovery support group that meets for 13 weeks twice a year. It utilizes a video seminar, group discussion and a personal workbook to help participants as they make their journey through grief. The only charge for this class is for the workbook, but scholarships are available upon request. GriefShare also offers other 2 hour classes: Loss of a Spouse and Surviving the Holidays.
