Lessons on Grief provides community and discussion for those who have lost a loved one. Each of the eight lessons is centered on a theme often experienced by those who journey through grief. As a group walks through the lessons together, the teaching content, handouts, and videos will help facilitate a discussion among group members with the goal of providing help, hope, and growth. These lessons are likely best-suited for participants who are still grieving but who are not necessarily in the initial phases of grief and are ready to share together in a group setting.

- Participants reflect on their emotions and experience walking through grief.
- Participants build a support community to help prayerfully process through this grief.
What is the commitment?
Participants should plan on spending 20-40 minutes per week to complete their lessons and are encouraged to spend an additional 15 – 20 minutes commenting on the lessons of fellow participants. In-person or virtual meetings are left up to the group to determine and carry out. All participants should have a desire to be open and engage with others. They should be willing to help and encourage others as well as being helped and encouraged themselves.
Ideally, each group should have a facilitator identified. The facilitator coordinates and encourages online participation and in-person meetings.
