GriefShare program will run Feb. 9 - May 11


Mountain View Presbyterian Church begins its 2017 Winter/Spring GriefShare® Series starting Feb. 9, running through May 11.

GriefShare helps individuals cope with the death of someone close. Group meetings will occur each Thursday at the church, 1:30-3:30 p.m., and the public is invited. Preregister by contacting 360-659-7777 or

Grief can be a valuable teacher, according to the internationally recognized curriculum used in these GriefShare sessions. Tips and tools are shared with participants for handling the hard work of mourning. Each week a topic is presented via DVD by grief experts and ‘real people’. A facilitator-led group discussion follows. Workbooks are $15.

“I learned that the journey truly is from grief to joy. Time is not the issue because we all grieve differently in our own time,” said a past participant

GriefShare is organized into 14 sessions covering issues such as grief and relationships, guilt and anger, why? and more. Individuals can join anytime and catch up on missed topics when the 14-week series repeats.

“Listening to others and relating to each other, I realized that I’m not alone,” said a past participant  

 Mountain View is located at 5115 100th Street NE in Marysville. For more information contact the church office at 360 659-7777, or email or visit
