Starting in January, Heritage Church will be offering a zoom-based GriefShare Support and Recovery group, being co-facilitated by Luis Colmaneres and Jenny Herzenstiel. GriefShare is an excellent faith-based support program. I attended a GriefShare group this past summer after my mother’s death. The workbook, videos, and group sharing were all tremendously helpful.
Our group is going to meet Monday evenings, via zoom, beginning January 11th at 8pm. Our share time may last from an hour to an hour and a half. The only cost is a $16 workbook, which Pastor Kevin McCarthy has available at church, or may also be purchased when you register for the group.
To participate, please go to https://www.griefshare.org/groups/128668 to register for our group. You will receive a follow-up email with further instructions prior to our first meeting. Our first meeting will be an overview and introductions. There is no “homework” prior to that first meeting.
After our first meeting, and each week thereafter, everyone can watch Griefshare’s encouraging video, at their own convenience. Throughout the week, we all answer questions and do journaling exercises in the workbook. When we meet on Monday, we will discuss the previous week’s material.
If Monday evenings do not work for your schedule, please browse the list of other groups. It is a wonderful program to help through the grieving process.
Pastor Kevin can answer questions about the group, or you can purchase a workbook through Heritage: (586) 630-1196. I hope that you’ll join Jenny and Luis on Zoom in January for Griefshare!
May God comfort and guide you down His path towards healing as you grieve. Blessings.
