Grief Support Group

Losing a loved one is very painful and can be overwhelming as we often must adjust to living and socializing alone. The goal of our Grief Support Group is to help people realize that as they journey through their grief, they are not alone.

The group will discuss the stages of grieving and how we each travel differently through our grief, yet experience the same human sorrow. We will learn about helpful distractions and the importance of using them to aid our progress. A sense of community will develop as we travel along together and we will know there is hope for all.

The group will meet at 1:00pm, one day a week, for four weeks, starting on August 10th and ending on August 31st. To register, call Ruth or Jimmy Jenkins at (352) 205-8181.
