GriefShare is a biblically-based, non-denominational program designed to minister to the long-lasting, persistent needs of those people who have lost a loved one through death. GriefShare is a seminar/small group support program.

A new 13-week cycle of GriefShare ministry sessions will begin on Sunday afternoon, January 20, 2019, at 3:00 P.M. in the First Baptist Church of Van Alstyne portable buildings. First Baptist Church of Van Alstyne is located at 121 E. Marshall St. (SE corner of Hwy. 5 and Marshall St.) in Van Alstyne, Tx. The meetings will be held each Sunday afternoon for 13 weeks taught by Jack Washington. Each weekly session is designed to be self-contained, so missing a weekly session during the 13-week period will not be disruptive.

The 13-week video-based program features respected Christian experts sharing their insight and wisdom on topics important to people in grief. The GriefShare program also includes personal testimonies from people who have lost a loved one. Each person attending will receive a workbook which will directly correspond to the video seminars with a note-taking outline for each video session, a daily Bible study on topics introduced on the videos, and a weekly journaling section. The cost of a workbook is $15. The workbook is yours to keep.

The 13 GriefShare sessions are free of charge.
