GriefShare starts Jan. 20 at Cowboy Fellowship

Cowboy Fellowship will start their GriefShare program at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20.

After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped coming, most of the people around you return to their normal lives. However, your grief continues and you feel alone.

Often friends and family want to help you, but don’t know how. That is the reason for GriefShare. The group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives.

GriefShare is a support group that meets weekly (They will not meet on Mother’s Day or Easter). You will find a warm, caring environment and will come to see the group as an oasis on your long journey through grief. There are three key parts of the GriefShare experience: video seminar, support group and workbook.

You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any point. Each session is “self-contained” so you do not have to attend in sequence.

If you plan to participate, please pre-register by calling George at 239-218-3377. You may also contact the Cowboy Fellowship office at 830- 769-3733.
