You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy. Psalm 30:11
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.
That's the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the death of someone close. This group is sponsored by First Baptist Georgetown, led by people who have experienced grief and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.
Each GriefShare session includes a video and seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos include real-life stories of people who have experienced losses similar to yours.
After viewing the video, you'll participate in a small group discussion about what you've seen on the DVD. You'll also have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experiences, and have the opportunity to share your own.
First Baptist Georgetown offers three GriefShare Cycles lasting 13 consecutive weeks each year. A new cycle begins the first non-holiday Thursday of January, May, and August.
During our January and August sessions, we offer a daytime session on Thursday from 1:30 pm - 3:30pm in Education Building 2 and an Evening session on Thursday from 6:30pm - 8:30pm in Education Building 3.
The May session meets on Thursday Evenings from 6:30pm - 8:30pm in Education Building 3.
An incredibly helpful workbook accompanies the course and is the only cost of involvement. The workbooks cost $20, but scholarships are readily available if the cost would present a financial hardship.
