Have you or someone you know suffered a loss recently? Webster Baptist Church in Sylva is hosting a free weekly Griefshare Group to help individuals heal after loss. The group meets every Wednesday at 5:30 at Webster Baptist’s main chapel.
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. It combines video seminars from experts with ministry leaders who are willing to share their experiences. Ministry Leader Renee Peoples says that after the loss of her husband she drove two hours away to find a GriefShare Group until a closer one started, because the lessons learned and support were worth the drive.
Due to the need for grief support locally, Webster Baptist Church decided to offer the program to anyone who needs it for free. They welcome all those from the community who are suffering from loss.
The GriefShare curriculum has been used since 1998. While receiving periodic updates, the goal of the program has remained, “A recovery program for those grieving the loss of a loved one.” Each week a new topic is covered, but all center around the recovery process.
Active participation is not required, but those who wish to share their experiences have that opportunity.
