  • Grief Share
    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 Grief Share, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.

    Each Grief Share session includes a video seminar and group discussion. A Greif Share workbook assists you with note-taking, journaling and grief study. The videos feature top experts on grief recovery, dramatic reenactments about living with grief and real-life stories of people who have experienced losses like yours.

    During the small group discussion time, you'll have the opportunity to interact with others who have experienced a recent loss, learn about their experience and share your own.

    13 Week Session will resume again May 14, 2019, every Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm. Registration is $20.00 (includes workbook). No childcare provided. Located at Bethel Life Worship Center, 246 S. Mercer St., Greenville, PA 16125. 724-589-5433.
  • For Bereaved Parents and Families
    The Compassionate Friends is an international support group for parents whose child has died, with United States Headquarters in Oak Brook, IL. The group has monthly meetings on the last Monday of the month at 6:30 PM. Other activities that help the healing process for these bereaved parents are Balloon Launches, Butterfly Releases, and a special World-Wide Candle Lighting in December. The group publishes a monthly newsletter and has a library of books available for the parents to sign out.

    The words of TCF's Founder, Simon Stephens, resonate with those who have come to The compassionate Friends hoping to find a purpose in a life that suddenly seems so empty.

    "Whether your family has had a child die (at any age from any cause) or you are trying to help those who have gone through this life altering experience, The Compassionate Friends exists to provide friendship, understanding, and hope to those going through the natural grieving process."

    Through a network of more than 650 chapters with locations in all 50 states, as well as Washington DC, Puerto Rico, and Guam, The compassionate Friends has been supporting bereaved families after the death of a child for four decades.

    The National Office and its staff also provide many levels of support to our chapters, as well as individual responses to those who call on the phone, contact them through our website, or send an e-mail that simply says, "My child has died. Help Me!" We will be here as long as you need us. That is our commitment to you. Time has proven that in caring and sharing comes healing.

    Last Monday of every month at 6:30 pm at Primary Health Network Charitable, 55 Pitt St., Sharon, PA 16146.
