    GriefShare features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed.


    Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you.  Confidentiality is very much a part of this program.


    You will find encouragement, comfort and help. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling.   You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.


    We do not want you to walk this journey alone.  GriefShare will be held on Thursdays, Feb. 24 – May 19 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm in the Shippensburg First Church of God Annex.  Our facilitators are Phil and Bonnie Myers and Cherie Finkey.  To register, please call 717-532-8421.
