GriefShare is a 13 week program designed to help bring healing to those who have lost a loved one. Grief has no set time frame. You can be a part of the group if your loved one died recently or years ago. The next group will begin on Sunday, January 14 at 3 p.m. Click here or on the picture to register with the official GriefShare website. Call 309-788-9384 if you want to talk to someone about the group.
GriefShare groups meet Sundays at 3 p.m. in the parlor of Two Rivers United Methodist Church. The parlor is upstairs, and provides a comfortable setting to talk, watch a video, and share some refreshments. The purpose of the meetings are to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
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.
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.
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.
The GriefShare program is based on the Bible, and takes a Christian approach to healing. The group will be facilitated by Pastor Robb McCoy. If you are interested in becoming a part of the GriefShare group that will launch on March 26, please fill out the form below. A suggested donation of $20 for the 13-week program helps pay for the workbook and refreshments that are included in each meeting.
