You Are Not Alone

Thursdays | January 12th - April 6th   | The Potter's House of Ft. Worth 

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 is a friendly, caring group of people who have also experienced loss and are on the same journey, and who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. For more information, or to register, email tthornton@tdjakes.org or go online at www.griefshare.org/groups/159184

Who: Anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one

When: Thursdays, January 12th - April 6th; 6:30 - 8:30pm 

Where: Fire Culture Sanctuary

How GriefShare Works

GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

Video Seminars with Experts

Each time your GriefShare group meets, you will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments, and on-location video. View a list of the weekly seminar topics here. 

Support Group Discussion

After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.

Personal Study and Reflection

During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

Daily Encouragement

Receive an encouraging email message every day for a year. These short messages will inspire you and provide practical information as you grieve the loss of your loved one.

“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”

Who Should Come … Who Should Not

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, Lay Helper, or church leader for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation.
