Tuesday nights beginning September 12 from 6:30-8:00pm in Room 205  

GriefShare is a support group that provides help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend.  You will find it to be a warm, caring environment and you will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your long journey through grief.  There are three key parts to our GriefShare experience:  Video Seminars, Support Groups, and a Workbook.  There are 13 weekly sessions that are all self-contained so you do not have to attend in sequence.  If you have questions you can email Roy Switzer at or Terri Rowe at
