GRIEF SUPPORT

GRIEFSHARE WILL BE ON HIATUS IN THE SUMMER AND FALL OF 2019 AND WILL RESUME IN THE SPRING OF 2020.  


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.
