Griefshare is a biblical support group for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. It is a safe, confidential group to share, meet others on the same journey and find comfort and hope from God’s word.

Our current griefshare class is now full and closed to new participants.

Griefshare is a 13 week support group. 

Call Sandy Garman at 805-423-0476 for more information.

Here’s what you can expect:


Each week GriefShare group will watch a video seminar featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies, dramatic reenactments and on-location video.


After viewing the video, you and the other group members will spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in your lives.


During the week you will have the opportunity to use your workbook for further personal study of the grieving process and to help sort out your emotions through journaling. Your group will spend time discussing questions and comments from the workbook study.

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. In the group you will:

…discover there are people who understand your hurts, emotions, and painful experiences!

…learn helpful, practical information that will help you recover from the pain of grief and loss.

…have the chance to talk about your experiences.

…have a workbook for personal study and to write down things you’ve learned.
