CHRIST-CENTERED GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS

“With the stresses and strains of everything going on—[grieving] people need comfort.” 

Bill, Pastor

MORE GRIEF. LESS SUPPORT.

Whether or not COVID was the cause of death, it has impacted the grief of millions. More people are grieving, and the effects are heightened. They’re feeling alone and don’t know where to turn.

Isn’t the COVID-19 crisis over?

With vaccines and warm weather on the horizon, many people are looking forward to a sense of normalcy. But for people grieving a death, life will never be the same again. COVID-19 brought new complexities to the “normal” grief process, and grieving people will feel the effects for months to come. A lay-led GriefShare support group helps people work through their grief and learn to adjust to life without their loved one.
