What is GriefShare?

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.  GriefShare has thousands of support groups that meet weekly around the world.

What is the Purpose?

If you have lost a loved one, it may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. You’ve probably found there aren't 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. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. 

Who Should Attend?

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. We understand that there are other losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or the loss of friends because of a move. This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions. We encourage you to ask a pastor, counselor, or church leader for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation. 

How Do I Partner With GriefShare at FMBC?

GriefShare groups are led by volunteers who understand and have a real concern for individuals experiencing the grief of loss. Most GriefShare leaders have experienced significant losses in their lives and are examples of the healing and restoration that can occur as an outgrowth of deep grief.  If you would like to learn more about becoming a GriefShare volunteer, contact The FMBC Grief Ministry at .
