GriefShare provides support to those who have lost loved ones. If you or someone you know has experienced the loss of a spouse, child, other family member or even a close friend, GriefShare can help you learn about the grieving process and move towards healing.


The support group meets for 13 weekly sessions. Each session includes time for watching a DVD with experts discussing grief and recovery subjects. A discussion follows
each viewing. The discussion period is non-threatening and if people do not feel like sharing, it is okay to just listen. Every session addresses subjects important to those experiencing grief. A GriefShare workbook is also provided. It is designed to help members take notes during the DVD screening and it includes exercises to complete during the week following each session. These exercises are intended to help each person move forward through their journey of grief.


For information about when the next GriefShare session begins, contact the church office at or 763.689.1173. You can also learn more about this ministry and register for the next session on the GriefShare website by clicking HERE.
