GriefShare Group

Monday, June 4, 2018 to Monday, August 27, 2018
Sundays, 12:30pm, Library

Grief is one of life's toughest journeys. Faith can and will heal, and time helps.

Time by itself does not take care of grief, but working through memories and facing the difficult pain together with others strengthens us to push through the grief.  Working through grief is like facing a strong wave on the beach and letting it wash over you. It feels like a monster wave sometimes, but it is healing.  This group is valuable for anyone who has lost a loved one in death.  The course is aimed at empowering people to successfully travel the painful path with God and with others.

Loss of a Spouse—a special one-time seminar for those who’ve lost a spouse in death—or a family member trying to understand what the grieving person is going through. Takes place Monday evening, November 5, 6:30-8:30. Cost is $5.00 and we would like them to contact us: Shirley 360-292-3155 or email:

There will be a combined session with Vancouver Church of God, 3300 NE 78th St., Surviving the Holidays: Tuesday, November 13, 6:30-8:30. Cost is $5.00 unless they already have a book, then no cost.

There are 13 sessions starting with the questions of “why” and then help you move on from there. The support group begins with an opportunity for people to share their story of grief—though there’s no pressure to share. There are a lot of tears and we welcome that.

Our first session begins on Monday, June 4, in the Fellowship Hall from 6:30 - 8:30 pm.  There is a one-time cost of $15.00 for the workbook that can be used if taking the class again. For questions, call the church office or Jim & Shirley Mozena: 360.292.3155—or email questions at  Please join us!

Due to the personal nature of this group, no sessions are recorded.
