Community members who have experienced the death of a family member or friend are invited to attend the GriefShare program held 2nd & 4th Mondays 7 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 405 Broad Street in Reinbeck.
The sessions are free and are not sequential, so people are invited to come to as many or as few as they like. This nondenominational program features 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 seen on the DVD. It is Biblically based and has Christian foundations, however all are welcome regardless of faith or church membership or background.
Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Past participants have related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them.
GriefShare facilitator Mike Campbell.
Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. 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 as a slave to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
Griefshare will be held 2nd & 4th Mondays in the fellowship room at the west (rear) entrance of First Presbyterian Church in Reinbeck. For more information contact facilitator Mike Campbell, 319-240-7639 or firstname.lastname@example.org. GriefShare is a nationally known program, and the website is www.griefshare.org.
