Grief Support


Support and Encouragement for Your Grief Journey

Our Fall GriefShare Grief Support Group will begin on Sunday, September 17 at 2:00pm in Room G-111.  We will meet each Sunday through Sunday, December 10th.  

GriefShare is a video seminar series that features some of the nation’s foremost Christian experts on grief and recovery topics as seen from a biblical perspective. The videos are combined with a small group discussion of the materials presented in the video and a workbook. 

No matter what the circumstance, grief recovery is a painful process. Whether your loss is recent or many years ago, GriefShare provides a safe environment where you will find comfort, encouragement and hope for the future. Come and see how being with others who have experienced similar losses helps you understand you are not alone and your feelings are normal for a grieving person. 

Please feel free to share this information with someone who might benefit from this ministry.  Brochures are available in the Welcome Center.  For more information or if you have questions about this program, please call the church office or email

We hope you will consider joining us.  


We will hold a special Surviving the Holidays seminar on Tuesday, October 24th at 6pm.  This is a special, 2 hour stand alone session.  When you’re grieving the death of a family member or friend, you may dread the holiday season. Thoughts of social gatherings, family traditions, and obligations may leave you anxious and overwhelmed. Your sadness may be unbearable.  You may wish you could skip to January.  What can you do to lessen your stress and loneliness?

The Surviving the Holiday seminar offers practical, actionable strategies for making it through the holiday season. At this two hour seminar, you will view a video featuring advice from people who have faced the holidays after their loss, insights from respected Christian counselors, pastors and psychologists and you will receive a Holiday Survival Guide with practical strategies, encouraging words, helpful exercises, Q/As and journaling ideas for daily survival through the holiday season. 


For more information on either of these sessions, please call the church office at  804-746-9073 or email

Our church building is at 8209 Shady Grove Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23111.
