It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.  This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”
 
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
  • Video seminar with experts
  • Support group discussion with focus
  • Personal study and reflection
                               
The next cycle begins at Worthington Presbyterian Church on Monday, February 19, 2024 from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm and concludes on May 20, 2024. 
  • This is a free program with the cost underwritten by WPC for the community. 
  • You can begin attending at any time within the cycle. 
  •  Please call the church office (724-297-3820) for more information.
