How GriefShare works

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.


GriefShare will start meeting on October 18th from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at Real Life Ministries Silver Valley.    This group will meet every Monday from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. through January 24th. 


Contact Saundra at (208) 908-2837 or the RLSMV church office at (208) 682-4801 for more information. 

Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

  • Video seminar with experts
  • Support group discussion with focus
  • Personal study and reflection

Who should attend

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. We understand that there are other losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or the loss of friends because of a move. This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions. We encourage you to ask a pastor, counselor, or church leader for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation. 

When to join a griefshare          group

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.

GROUP LEADERSHIP

The leadership team for GriefShare consists of people who understand how you feel and have a real concern for individuals experiencing the grief of loss. Most GriefShare leaders have experienced significant losses in their lives and are examples of the healing and restoration that can occur as an outgrowth of deep grief.
