GriefShare Support Group

Saturdays at 9:30 am

We are pleased to announce that a new Caring Ministry, GriefShare, will be starting at FCCO this coming January.  This is a well-known curriculum that assists anyone who is grieving from the loss of a loved one. Whether your loss is recent or not so recent, this group will be a safe place to process and understand your grief with others who understand the journey.

 This 13-week grief support group program focuses on important grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The weekly videos feature nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, and the video is followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Past participants have related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them. 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. 

Confidentiality is very much a part of this program. You will find encouragement, comfort, and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. 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 dealing with the changes in your life and renewing your hope for the future.

On Sunday, January 7, there will be one service only at 10:30 am (in person & online).
