Feeling like you’re stuck in a stage of grief after the loss of a loved one is common. Feeling over-emotional, on the verge of tears and wondering if life will ever return to “normal” is also experienced by many.

Grief affects all of our lives sooner or later. Having the support of others who “get it” and the advice of both professionals and lay people will help during this difficult time.

Pacific Coast Church is offering a 13-week session of GriefShare beginning Monday, Sept. 9 at the church located at 2651 Calle Frontera in San Clemente.
Attendees will be welcomed by facilitators who themselves have experienced loss and who are ready to help people use the tools GriefShare has to offer.

“The very best thing about GriefShare is that you find out that you’re not crazy and you’re not alone,” said one participant.

The sessions encompass watching a video, an opportunity for discussion and personal application. They are self-contained, and while attending all of them gives the most benefit, it is not a requirement.

GriefShare uses a Biblical approach, but church attendance or membership is not needed.

$15 covers the cost of the workbook. For more information, email or call the church office at 949.940.2600. Register online at
