Bereavement Series

Offered in the Fall and Spring. This is an eight-week series that offers hope even through the grief of losing a loved one. The group offers a safe place to share your own journey with grief and to learn from others. We learn to let others into our struggle and to enter gently into theirs, to take strength and to give it.

Monthly Support Group: Good Grief

Meets once a month on the second Wednesday of each month at 10:00am. We offer support and share ways to deal with the grief of a loved one whether it is the death of a child, a spouse, a parent, a sibling or a friend. Grief is hard work. Take this opportunity, join a group and share your grief experience and receive support.
