New Grief Support Group to begin January 9, 2018

When you have lost someone you love, it takes much longer to heal than most people realize. If you are suffering from fresh or prolonged grief, please consider joining our next grief support group here at FUMC.
The next group will begin on January 9 and meet every other Tuesday evening from 6:00  pm to 7:30 pm for 10 sessions. The group will journey together through a course of study based on Understanding Your Grief: Ten Essential Touchstones for Finding Hope and Healing Your Heart by Alan Wolfelt.
The cost to participate in the group is $25, which covers the cost of the study book. Pre-registration for the group is necessary; the group size is limited so there can be comfortable sharing.
The group is open to our congregation and our entire community. If you are interested, know someone who might be, please call Judy or Jim Buckingham at 936-569-6160.
