First Care



Are you or someone you know grieving the loss of a loved one?

Find help and encouragement through your GriefShare Support Group.

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You do not have to go through the grieving process alone.

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future. If you have lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you have probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.  This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you have never faced before.

“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”

GriefShare groups meet weekly, for thirteen weeks, and consist of the following distinct components:

Ø  Video Seminar – Encouraging, information-packed videos featuring leading grief recovery experts

Ø  Support Group – Small group discussion about the weekly video content

Ø  Workbook – Journaling and personal study exercises that reinforce the weekly session topics

Your caring facilitators will walk with you on the path from grief toward healing and hope, and they are there to help you face the challenges of grief and help you move towards rebuilding your life.

Divorce Care

Healing from divorce is not easy. At Divorce Care groups, people in separation and divorce find tools, teaching and support to help them deal with their pain and give them hope for the future.

Most people will say separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they have ever had. If you are facing this, you know it is a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you have never encountered before.

Divorce Care groups help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.  The 13-week Christ-centered program includes three main parts—video, group discussion and personal Bible study. The videos feature teaching from over 50 leading Christian counselors, teachers and pastors who speak on topics important to people in separation or divorce. The videos also contain real-life stories of people who have been through a marital breakup, as they share their pain, challenges, and path to healing.

During the discussion time, the group will discuss the concepts presented in the videos and share what is going on in everyone’s lives. Each participant will receive a workbook that contains a daily Bible study for personal reflection and application throughout the following week.

The Divorce Care sessions address divorce-related concerns, such as how long is this pain going to last? Will I survive? Are these feelings I’m having normal? Where is God in all this? You will gain insights on how to handle tough emotions, such as anger, depression, and loneliness.

Other Divorce Care session topics:

  • What to do about sexual temptation
  • How to get out of debt
  • What the Bible says about your situation
  • How to know if you are ready for a new relationship
  • How to lessen the impact of divorce on your children
  • Reconciliation

For information on our next session, please contact us via email at  or call 281-367-4317 and we will be pleased arrange to conduct a session with enough people to start a group OR to help you find a group that is conveniently located.
