FFBC, PTCUMC both will offer Griefshare in May

Fayetteville First Baptist Church and Peachtree City United Methodist will both begin a new session of GriefShare, a 13-week Bible based program for those who have lost a loved one.

The class at FFBC starts May 4 and meets each Tuesday from 6:30-8 p.m. Each class begins with a video followed by group discussion. There is no charge for the class.

The program is open to people of all ages in the community and surrounding areas, whether the loss is recent or in the past.

Those who have lost a spouse, a child, a parent, a sibling, a relative or a close friend are encouraged to join this new session.

Sessions are led by Paul and Mary Ellen Ashworth, Jenny Muller and Gena Turner and meet in Room A-101 in the First Baptist Church Worship Center building at 205 Stonewall Ave., just a block from the Fayette County Courthouse in downtown Fayetteville.

For directions or more information, call Mary Ellen at the church office, 770-461-8378.

PTCUMC’s Griefshare sessions will begin May 6 and will meet each Thursday night from 6:30 – 8 p.m.

Sessions will be held in room 308 at 225 Robinson Rd., Peachtree City.

All facilitators have lost a loved one and can identify with the emotions that result from the grief process.
