Support and Encouragement for Your Grief Journey


The Grief Support Ministry Team will be holding a two hour seminar, “Surviving the Loss of a Spouse” on Sunday, January 19, at 2 p.m. in Room G111.
This seminar features practical suggestions and reassurance through video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and others who have experienced the unique pain of losing a spouse. Topics discussed include what to expect in the weeks and months after a spouse’s loss, what to do with surprising emotions, how to handle changing relationships, how to handle the loneliness, what to do with your spouse’s belongings, and how to find the strength to go on.
Our 2020 Spring GriefShare Grief Support group will begin spring sessions on Sunday, January 26 at 2 p.m. in Room G111. GriefShare is a special weekly program designed for those who are suffering the deep loss caused by the death of a loved one (parent, child, sibling, spouse, or friend).  This program provides the compassion of others who understand what you are experiencing.
These sessions are open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one (recent or not so recent). The sessions provide encouragement and help in grieving the death of your loved one. This is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling; to learn valuable information on facing life situations, and to gain renewed hope for the future.  If you or someone you know could benefit, please join us.

Our church building is located at 8209 Shady Grove Rd., Mechanicsville, VA 23111.
