GRIEF COALITION

Coping with death can result in stressful changes. Attempts to deny the pain and confusion of grief promote despair and loneliness. Gaining an understanding of the grief process in a caring and supportive atmosphere increases coping skills and leads to personal growth.

About US

Grief is a
UNIVERSAL EXPERIENCE

Churches in the Bloomington-Richfield area are working together to provide free support and education for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. You can start any series at any time. There is no commitment on attendance and no cost. Group meetings are held 4:30-6 p.m. Thursdays.
Each session includes:

Education Presentation 4:30-5 p.m.

Understanding the grief process and the many emotions involved in working through one's grief makes the journey less frightening. Guest speakers share their own experiences and professional knowledge on grief and loss.

Support 5-6 p.m.

Small groups will be formed where the participants will have the opportunity to share their feelings and concerns with others who are also working through the grief process.
