No matter what the circumstances, grief is a painful process.

If you are dealing with the death of a family member or friend, GriefShare is for you. It’s a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. At this 13-week support group program, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability – and gain solid support each step of the way.

At each weekly meeting, you will view a video featuring respected counselors, pastors, and healthcare professionals on grief-related topics, plus you’ll hear relatable personal stories of grief. Topics include how to manage grief-related emotions such as loneliness, anxiety, sadness, anger, and regret; how to cope with the changes in your life and relationships; and how to recognize what’s normal in grief and what to do if you feel stuck or hopeless.

No matter how recent or long ago your bereavement experience was, you are invited to attend.

Please join us Mondays, March 11-June 3, 1:00-3:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall (lower level) at ECC Princeton. There is no cost. (There is an optional workbook for $20.)

If you have questions, please contact the church office at 815-875-2124.
