GRIEF SUPPORT

This group began in 2014 by parents who had lost children to offer support for others who were grieving the loss of loved ones. The leaders are now trained in the Grief Share Program. This program offers a 13 week video series along with a workbook to help in the process.


The program is Christian focused and uses a weekly video, discussion and workbook for study.  The group leaders from Rocky River were trained by Hospice of Cabarrus County and refer some people to Hospice Counselors when more individual work is needed.


It is lead by several facilitators from Rocky River including Julia Alexander, Mimi Reynolds, Pam Sciascia and Alice Williams and has support from Hospice of Cabarrus County counselors and pastor Neal Carter.


THE FALL SERIES WILL BEGIN ON AUGUST 16.


You can register online at griefshare.org -  Just type our zipcode 28025 and you can click on the  Rocky River Presbyterian Church session and you will be redirected to the registration form.  Or you can call the office at 704-455-2479.


The class runs for 13 weeks and is held on Thursday evenings  from 6:30 to 8:00pm. The only cost is $15 for the workbook. Each week a new topic is addressed. Please invite anyone you know that has experienced the loss of a loved one to join us.


You can attend one or all of the sessions.
