What is GriefShare?

GriefShare is a faith-based weekly seminar and support group for people who are grieving the death of someone close to them. At GriefShare, you learn valuable information about recovering from grief and renewing your hope for the future. 

The GriefShare program consists of 13 seminar topics. Each GriefShare class includes a video seminar and group discussion. A GriefShare workbook assists you with note taking, journaling, and grief study. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief, and real-life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours. Participants may begin attending GriefShare at any session. Each session is self-contained, so you do not have to attend in sequence. For more information about the GriefShare program, please visit the GriefShare website.
