GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend.  It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now.  If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.  

GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  
Our next GriefShare class will begin with the first session on February 7, 2019, 6-8pm, and will meet for the next 13 Thursdays.  
If you are interested in attending, please contact the church office. 
Call (417) 967-2940 or email at
We also have a facebook group, which you can request to join here.

GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays is a helpful, encouraging seminar for people facing the holidays after a loved one’s death.
The seminar features video interviews with counselors, grief experts, and other people who have experienced the holidays after their loved one’s death and who offer practical suggestions and reassurance. These people share honestly about:  
  • Being prepared for surprising emotions that may hit over the holidays
  • What to do about traditions and other coming changes
  • How to handle holiday parties and invitations
  • How to survive potentially awkward moments with other people
  • Where to find comfort, strength, and hope in a seemingly hopeless time
  Those who attend will receive a Survival Guide filled with practical tips, encouraging words, journaling ideas, and exercises for daily help through the holiday season.
This session is usually held in early November as we head into the holiday season. 
Please watch this space for next year’s session.
