Support group meets at the Evangelical Covenant Church in Princeton

PRINCETON — GriefShare, a support group for those who have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, will be starting a new meeting session from 1 to 3 p.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 25, at the Evangelical Covenant Church, 24 N. Main St. in Princeton. Meetings will be every Monday afternoon through Jan. 24. The “Surviving the Holidays” session will be held on Nov. 8.

GriefShare is a 13-week video seminar series that features some of the nation’s foremost Christian experts on grief and recovery topics as seen from a biblical perspective. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements — video seminar with experts, support group discussion with focus and personal study and reflection. The group will meet weekly to help face challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. There is a small cost of $15 for the workbook.
