GriefShare–beginning August 14

Summit Baptist Church in Acworth is beginning their fall cycle of GriefShare on Sunday, August 14, 2022, and it will run through November 13, 2022. The sessions will begin at 3:00pm and end at 5:00pm. There is no charge for these sessions. This is a faith-based program for anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one–either a relative or a friend. (It is designed only for someone that has lost a person; it is not designed for other kinds of grief such as financial loss, divorce, loss of a pet, etc.) Many people that have gone through this program have expressed how much it has helped them in their journey through their grief. Even though it is faith-based, it is not based on any one denomination–it is strictly Bible-based. You are welcome to go online and sign up at, type in your zip code and if you type in the zip code 30101 or 30102, you will see Summit Baptist Church listed at the top. Or, if you prefer, you can call the church office at 770-975-4595 and they can tell you how to sign up.
