ImageNew GriefShare Sesisony | Sundays, August 17 - November 9 {13 weeks}
5 - 7PM Weekly
| COST: $17/workbook

Who is GriefShare for?
It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you've probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things never faced before. Your GriefShare group will meet weekly on Sunday nights to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.

Video Seminar with Experts: Each week your group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. 
Support Group Discussion with Focus: Your group will spend time discussing the video and what's going on in your lives. 
Workbook-Based 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.

Congregational Care Ministry
Thru our Congregational Care Ministry we host quarterly blood drives, sponsor Lifeline health screenings, give prayer quilts to members who are facing serious illness and  facilitate short-term transportation to doctor's appointments.

We also offer GriefShare classes, try to support families when they experience a death and send cards to comfort in times of sadness and illness. We visit the homebound and our Care Call Ministry contacts members who have missed several Sundays in a row to let them know they are missed.

We at NFUMC believe in "whole body" health - spiritual, mental and physical. For more information on ministries for lay involvement, contact Rev. Brenda Westmoreland at 770-448-4142, ext. 101.
