GriefShare

It hurts to lose someone you love. The journey of grief is a painful process, but you do not need to walk it alone. GriefShare connects you with others who have experienced loss and understand what you are going through. GriefShare is a 13-week seminar and support group. 


In GriefShare, you will learn how to cope with the normal emotions that come when grieving a death, and to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief. Learn valuable information to help you face life situations, and gain renewed hope for the future. Each DVD session features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories, followed by small group discussion. 


To learn more about the next GriefShare series, contact Scott Pfluger or call the church office at (908) 647-0340.

Grieving Covid Support Group

Are you feeling alone and isolated during the COVID crisis? Are you experiencing grief caused by life changes and losses related to the pandemic? It is normal to feel different and to experience grief during a crisis. You are not alone.


Liberty Corner Presbyterian Church is offering a new group to help adults who are struggling with losses during the COVID crisis. Learn about the grieving process and emotions you might be experiencing, discover methods for coping in a healthy way, and receive encouragement and support. The group will meet weekly for 12 weeks.


The leaders are Scott Pfluger who led many GriefShare groups at LCPC, and Emi Sprinkle, who led grief groups, trauma recovery groups, women's sexual abuse recovery groups, and addiction recovery groups in the past.
