What is GriefShare?
Note: GriefShare is now up and running. We plan to offer it twice a year at Temple. If you have questions, contact Pastor Kevin at email@example.com or call the church office at 519-542-1427.
GriefShare is an 11 week program for people grieving the death of a family member or friend
(Cost is $20 for a booklet - Scholarships Available).
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session is comprised of three distinct elements:
1. Video Seminar with Experts
Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.
2. Support Group Discussion with Focus
After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.
3. Personal Study and Reflection
During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence.
If you have attended in the past you are welcome to join us for another season of Griefshare.
