  • Grief Recovery Support Group.
    GriefShare is a weekly seminar/support group for people grieving the death of someone close. It’s a place where you can be around people who understand how you feel and the pain of your loss. This group is led 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 video seminar and group discussion. A workbook assists you with note-taking, journaling and grief study. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief and real-life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours. You will have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences and share your own. GriefShare is a nondenominational group and features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics. This class meets on Thursdays, from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in Room 403 on the Niceville Campus and ends December 18. Contact Hope McKinnon at 678-4411 ext 166 for more information.
