New GriefShare classes begin May 4

Grieving the passing of a beloved family member or a close friend is a life altering experience. As such, grief, a normal response to death, is unique to every individual. Whether the loved one battled a debilitating disease for an extended period of time or died unexpectedly, grief is a painful reality that should not be avoided if one truly wants to experience healing.

Sun Lakes United Methodist Church is hosting GriefShare, a program designed to help those struggling with grief. If you or someone you know is looking for help in dealing with grief, consider being a part of the Wednesday afternoon GriefShare class which will begin on May 4 and run through July 13. The class will meet from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in Room One of the Education Building.

Each lesson is self-contained, so if you are not able to attend every class, you are welcome to come as often as you can. The class registration fee of $15 covers the cost of the workbook. Register online at or at the church office at 9248 E. Riggs Road, Sun Lakes. For more information call 480-895-8766.
