Grief affects everyone. Every week there are names of people in the church have experienced or are facing the loss of someone they love. For many, knowing what to do or how to help in these situations can be difficult, especially when sending flowers or offering a sympathetic word just doesn't seem like enough.
The Grief Care Kit is a practical resource to help churches provide real help and healing for people facing grief. Designed to help leaders establish a grief ministry, it includes a copy of a grief seminar by author Harold Ivan Smith as well as instructions for leading a grief recovery group, which include a leader's guide and student workbook. The material also comes in electronic files and is completely reproducible, so leaders can adapt and reuse these resources to fit their changing group needs year after year.
