What is GriefShare?
One of the ways KUMC ministers to those who have experienced the death of a loved one is to offer a support group with an emphasis on growing from mourning to joy. This group is called GriefShare, and is a 13 week journey for hope and healing in the midst of grief. We have been doing this program here at KUMC for many years and have found it to be very helpful to those who are grieving the loss of their loved one(s).
“Each of the people found something to keep them going.”
“I’m not alone in my feelings and what I’m experiencing.”
“There is hope!”
“Others have [the] same problems”
Whether you lost a loved one recently or years ago, the grieving process can be painful, complicated, and last longer than you anticipated.
We want you to know it’s okay for it to be difficult! You don’t have to go through it alone! The GriefShare program is for people JUST LIKE YOU as we all seek to cope and manage the moments together.

Both in-person and online sessions will begin on Mondays and Tuesdays starting September 12 – December 14th, 2021 from 10:00am-12:00pm or 6:00pm-8:00pm. If you would like to participate in this class, please register online at griefshare.org.
