What Is GriefShare?

If you've recently lost a loved one, our GriefShare Team would like to help. 

GriefShare, a 13-week grief recovery support group, is biblically-based, Christ-centered, and designed for people grieving the death of someone close. If you've lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you've probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. GriefShare is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.

Each GriefShare session includes a time of sharing, a video seminar and group discussion. GriefShare videos feature top experts on grief recovery and well-known authors, counselors, speakers, and pastors such as Dr. Bill Bright, Anne Graham Lotz, Dr. Jack Hayford and Zig Ziglar.

For additional information about how GriefShare works, please call Carol Abrams at 352.307.3286 or you may call the church office at 352.205.7114. 

When scheduled, upcoming GriefShare Sessions will be listed below. You may register for any session online. There is no cost for materials.

Surviving The Holidays
A GriefShare Event

Wondering how you will survive the weeks surrounding Thanksgiving and Christmas? Are you dreading these holidays, knowing that everything has changed and that happy memories from past years can't be recreated?

GriefShare's "Surviving The Holidays" gives help and hope as you navigate the holiday season having just lost a loved one. It is especially for people who are grieving a loved one's death. You'll learn:

  • How to deal with the many emotions you'll face during the holidays.
  • What to do about traditions and other coming changes. 
  • Helpful tips for surviving social events.
  • How to discover hope for your future

A "Surviving The Holidays" event lasts for about two hours. You'll be welcomed by warm, caring people who understand what you are going through and who want to help. During the seminar, you will:

  • Watch a 40-minutes video, filled with practical holiday survival tips and the real-life stories of people who have navigated the season after their loved's one's death.
  • Hear other seminar attendees explain how they are dealing with the holidays
  • Have the opportunity to share how grief is affecting you. (No pressure - this is optional. We want you to feel comfortable.)
  • Receive a personal copy of the GriefShare Holiday Survival Guide.
