Grief is the normal reaction to a loss of any kind. Grief is a bundle of emotions, and it is experienced holistically – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Everyone grieves differently, but no one should grieve alone. Grief Share is a group in which you learn about good and godly grief, and can talk about your grief process with others who are grieving, under the watchful care of a trained grief counselor. The next class is to-be-determined. Private appointments are also available upon request.
