GriefShare Ministry

Have you experienced a significant loss? Join GriefShare.

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).

To sign up, contact Donna Smith by phone at (281) 358-2137 or e-mail at donna.smith@kingwoodumc.org.

Join GriefShare

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.

“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”

Surviving the Holidays Seminar

KUMC hosts an annual Surviving the Holidays Seminar during the winter. This one night seminar is for those who have lost a loved one to help prepare you as you face the holiday season.  It is led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help during this difficult time of the year.

Surviving the Holidays is held in November. Details for the 2020 seminar will be forthcoming.
