GriefShare is a 13 week Christian based, video driven support group for people grieving the death of someone close. Each weekly meeting centers on a topic important to the grief recovery process. The weekly meetings will be built around three components: 1) Video Seminar 2) Support group discussion and 3) personal study and Reflection. It’s a place where you can be around people who understand how you feel and the pain of your loss. At GriefShare, you’ll learn valuable information that will help you through this difficult time in your life. There is an optional” workbook available that follows the Video seminars. This GriefShare group will meet every Tuesday (except week of July 4th) starting this Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 from 7 pm—9 pm.

There will be at least one or two boats pulling tubes and possibly some skiing. You may bring your bikes, enjoy hiking around the lake, campfire chats . . . all of the usual camping fun with your church family friends and those you have not had the opportunity to really get to know yet.
