Healing Starts Here

Healing Starts Here

It’s hard for others to understand the hurt caused by the loss of a loved one, or by separation and divorce. It may even be difficult to feel optimistic about the future right now. But, support is available. Manchester UMC offers two groups that have helped hundreds of others through the pain. We invite you to start healing now.

GriefShare

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. “Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering,” said one participant.  

GriefShare meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. You are welcome to join at any time during the series. Each session has three distinct elements: video, support, and workbook. Complimentary childcare is available when registering at least 7 days in advance. Book fee: $15.


DivorceCare

Unless you’ve been there, it’s hard to understand the hurt that comes from separation and divorce. We understand how you feel because we’ve been in the same place. We’ll show you how to deal with the hurt.

DivorceCare meets weekly. We think you’ll find it to be an “oasis” in an otherwise difficult season of your life. You are welcome to join at any time during the series. There are three key parts to this experience: video, support, and workbook. Complimentary childcare is available when registering at least 7 days in advance. Book fee: $15.
