Support

Everyone needs a little support once in a while.

  • GriefShare

    GriefShare is a national Christian ministry for those grieving the death – recent or in the past – of someone close. 


    Thousands of GriefShare support groups meet all over the world and find caring, supportive people ready to help them navigate the difficult journey of grief. At FaithWestwood, this 14-week seminar and support group meets periodically during the year. 


    The next session of GriefShare at FaithWestwood begins Monday, October 17 at 6:00 p.m. Registration is required.
