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 you’ve never faced before.
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements: video seminar with experts, support group discussion with focus, and personal study and reflection.
You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin. You will be able to continue with GriefShare through the next 13-week cycle and view any of the videos you have not seen.
GriefShare for the Sauk Valley area meets on Thursday afternoons 2:00-4:00 and evenings 6:00-8:00 at Sauk Valley Community Church in the counseling room. Support groups are facilitated twice a year. Please contact Sauk Valley Community Church for further details on scheduling.
