GriefShare at Trinity Baptist

A 13-week class called “GriefShare” begins at 6 p.m. on Sunday, February 10, at 1819 16th Street, Orange 77630.  It is a grief recovery group, led by Dan Cruse, and assisted by several people who have also experienced grief.  Whether it is a spouse, a child, or a parent, GriefShare is ready to support.  Dan Cruse needs a support group for families to help him with facilitating programs.  Participants are welcome to attend the GriefShare group at any point.  Each session is “self-contained,” so a participant does not have to attend each session.  Past group members have, reportedly, said that they feel safe and loved, that they received hope, and that they felt it was a turning point in their lives.  GriefShare could be a person’s journey from mourning to joy, according to Cruse, Trinity Baptist worship minister.  Cruse is also a retired guidance counselor, as well as a retired music educator.  Please call 409.886.1333, email the pastor at, or check the Trinity Baptist Facebook page for more information.  There is also a national website,, and the classes include a personal workbook, a video seminar, and a group discussion, giving participants support and encouragement for their own grief journey.  GriefShare is a network of 15,000 or more churches worldwide equipped to offer grief support groups.  The program is nondenominational and features biblical concepts for healing from a person’s grief.  The minister at Trinity Baptist is Pastor Ryan Chandler.
