St. John's partners with
a network of thousands of grief recovery groups throughout the world. GriefShare
is a group process designed to help you
successfully travel the journey from mourning to joy. GriefShare compliments St.
John's mission so that grief recovery can be a healing experience where you Meet
Jesus, Experience the Support of the Church and Live anew as Disciples.
In each GriefShare session our
Marnie Smith and
Jean Durham guide the group through a video
presentation and discussion. Feel free to contact them for more information.
Both ladies have experienced the loss of a spouse and family members and can
share their insights.
The GriefShare videos feature
interviews with leading authors, counselors, speakers, and pastors with years of
expertise in grief recovery.
You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each
session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will
find encouragement and help whenever you begin. The video link at the right
shares testimonials from GriefShare participants and how they have learned to
heal from grief.

us, respects where we are coming from and values us as part of the

led to making connections and starting other new small groups. I am
open to meeting new people and seeing the resources God has given us

was searching for a church. We brought my son Cam to St. John’s to
look at the school. I was so impressed with the school that we
started attending church also. After two services I told my mom,
“This is where I want to be!” Everyone was so welcoming and St.
John’s school has such a friendly atmosphere. You can truly see the
love and care between teachers, students, parents and volunteers. I
felt welcomed and appreciated almost immediately. ~Amy – School
