Welcome to Faith Avon GriefShare Support Group at Faith Lutheran Church and Preschool, 2265 Garden Dr., Avon Ohio. Our Pastor is David Woolsey.

You are taking a positive step in healing from your grief. Losing a loved one is a painful experience but each of us mourns the death of a loved one uniquely. GriefShare can help you cope with the pain and all the other emotions that you might experience after the death of a loved one.

Attending each session with others also grieving the death of a loved one will remind you that you are not alone. This is important because grief can make one feel lonely and isolated. In this 13-week GriefShare Support Group session, you will have the support of others while you learn about why grief is so challenging and practical strategies to help you navigate your personal grief journey.

We plan to meet in-person. If we must go virtual due to Covid-19 guidelines in place in January 2021, you will be notified promptly and provided the necessary information to meet online. A virtual group will be "Participant Pay" meaning that you will order your workbook directly from GriefShare and it will be delivered to your home. The current cost of the workbook via GriefShare is $15.00 + Shipping. There is an additional $5.00 registration fee to cover expenses for the entire 13 weeks.

To access the GriefShare videos online, all new and returning participants must be registered with GriefShare.

Our onsite registration fee is $20.00 and is "Church Pay" meaning that we will provide the workbook at the first session. This covers the cost of the personal workbook, From Mourning to Joy and all expenses for the entire 13-weeks. There is no additional registration fee for those returning for subsequent Faith Avon 13-week sessions; but all members must have a current workbook.
