In light of the loss of so many saints and friends of our church, First Baptist Church, Easley will be hosting a grief support group called GriefShare in January 2018.

We all know that it hurts to lose someone. What is the most important thing you can do after experiencing the death of someone you love? Many say that taking care of yourself and accessing the support of friends, family, and a personal faith can help you navigate the turbulent waters ahead.

GriefShare is a Christian, faith-based program which provides a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. There are thousands of GriefShare grief recovery support groups meeting throughout the US, Canada, and in over 10 other countries.

About Our Class

Our group will be led jointly led by Carol Bray and Wanda Stewart and is meeting at First Baptist Church, Easley. The 13-week class will begin on Monday evening, January 22, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. The cost for the class is $25.00/person and includes journaling materials and a participant workbook. You will be directed to pay online after you register below.

Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

  • Video seminar with experts
    Each week your GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video.
  • Support group discussion with focus
    After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.
  • Personal study and reflection
    During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.
