Dear Grieving Ones,  

Shirley and I would like to welcome you to GriefShare grief support group. Both Shirley and I have lost spouses and children and appreciate the pain you are in currently. If you have lost a spouse, child, parent, grandparent, close relative, or friend you are at the right place. By now you probably have signed up or planning to sign up for our Glenwood’s Community Church Griefshare program starting June1st on Monday evenings at 6:30 and every Monday thereafter until August 24th.

Griefshare is a God-centered program for people of any religion or faith. As you may be aware because of the Covid-19 virus, we are starting online to protect the health safety of all participants. We may be meeting face-to-face later in the summer.  

To register:  (If you need help, our contact information is below.)

  • Go to GriefShare.org and type in your zip code and it will show Griefshare meetings in your area.
  • If you would like to attend our group sponsored by Glenwood Community Church, go about half way down the list and click on Glenwood Community Church.
  • Click on “Register for this Group” in upper right corner of page or lower part of page. Fill in your personal information and please add your phone number so if there are any changes we can contact you. On that page, click on the video to get an overview of GriefShare and click “What to expect when attending online”.  As of May 31, online PDF handbooks will not be available, and you will need to buy a handbook, instructions below.
  • After you register in this group, the next screen will pop up and you can order your required “Mourning to Joy GriefShare Handbook” for the thirteen Griefshare sessions.  Click Buy Now, then click In cart, enter your shipping and payment information.

The day after you register, you may click the following link: https://www.griefshare.org/watch/c7c917a32917 and your Griefshare videos will pop up for all 13 of them. You will need to watch a video before each session. Please watch session #1 video before you join us on June 1st at 6:30pm.
  • We will be using Zoom Meeting online for our GriefShare sessions.  You will need to download zoom.us onto your computer. Your computer will need to have a camera and microphone. Most computers purchased in the last ten years will have camera and microphone built in. You may wish to use your smartphone if your computer does not have a camera. 
  • Each week we will be sending you an email a few days before the meeting and it will contain a link you will click to join our Griefshare meeting on Monday evenings at 6:30.

 

If you need any help with any of this or any questions regarding GriefShare please call Shirley Mozena at 206-292-3155 or email Shirley at shirleyqmo@gmail.com.  Or, you can call Jim Mozena  at 503-804-8349 or email Jim at jimmozena@gmail.com. If you feel uncomfortable with the technical details, perhaps a family member or neighbor or friend could also help you register for GriefShare and sign up for Zoom meetings.

We’ve had the privilege of facilitating 12 GriefShare groups over the past few years, and look forward to meeting you, and assisting you through this difficult journey of grief.

Prayerfully,   

Jim and Shirley Mozena
