Most churches do a wonderful job of caring for grieving people from their congregation in the immediate days surrounding a death and a funeral. Meals are provided, services conducted, and cards and flowers are sent. Typically, a pastor/church leader is directly involved with those who have lost a loved one before and immediately after the funeral.
But the griever often NEEDS more!
A few days after the funeral, most of the people surrounding the griever return to their daily routines. They don’t understand the deep, prolonged impact caused by the death of a spouse, child, family member, or close friend. The griever needs ongoing support and encouragement, lasting months, or perhaps even longer. It’s a level of care that even the most conscientious pastor is unable to provide.

At each meeting, participants learn about grief-related issues. The topics covered during those 13 weeks can be grouped into the following thematic categories:
