This group is sponsored by people who have experienced and understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time. GriefShare features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics and is open to anyone in the community, at any time. You do not need to be attending Grace Church, and each session stands on its own so you do not need to wait for week one to join us.

In times of need and times of fun, Grace small groups are your source of friendship and support. They are your key to developing connections with those who share your interests or people who are dealing with similar life issues.

Small groups are an opportunity to reach out to others, while growing in your walk with the Lord. Groups meet in homes, businesses, restaurants, or at the church. The groups change and begin again three times a year, so you have the opportunity to try out different ones. You’ll never fully experience all that Grace has to offer until you connect in a small group! Join a group anytime!
