GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. A person may join the group at any time. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

For more information contact the church office for dates and times.  815-765-2001.
