At the time of a death in a family, support of the Church is important. In addition to the pastors, lay persons of the Church minister to the family by providing a meal, either at home or the Church, and by offering to “house-sit” during the funeral. Please contact Donna Smith for help during your time of loss or to find out how you can reach out to others who are going through these losses in their lives.

GriefShare

“When I first came to Grief Share, I couldn’t talk without crying.  I still cry sometimes, but I know that my journey of healing is a process.  Grief Share has been most helpful.”

If you have lost a loved one, whether it be a spouse, a child, parent, friend, you know that feeling of “wandering through a wilderness” alone.  There may be people all around, but you feel sad and alone.  Grief Share is a support group for you, whether your loss was a month ago or 5 or years ago.  As you meet weekly with others who have lost a loved one, you will find a safe place to share your feelings with others, to watch a video featuring both experts and people like you who have lost someone, and discuss what you learn.  This 13-week group experience can help you see that all of the mixed emotions are feeling are normal, and will help you get through the difficult days. The Summer session of Grief Share begins Monday, May 1st and will go through Monday, July 31st (with holiday breaks on Memorial Day and week of July 4th). The class will begin at 10:00AM-12:00PM in Building C, Room E-204. Cost is $20 for the workbook. If interested, please contact Donna Smith at (281)-358-2137 or donna.smith@kingwoodumc.org.
