GriefShare begins again
GriefShare is a small support group offering hope and encouragement for those who have lost someone they love through death. St. Mark’s United Methodist Church began the fall cycle of classes on August 19. With open enrollment for any session, it is still available to all participants.
There are 13 weeks of classes to be held in person in the fellowship hall, with enough space to allow for Covid protocols of masks and distancing for participants as they are comfortable. There are two sessions to choose from:10-11 a.m. or 6:30-7:30 p.m.
The videos are available on the GriefShare website to watch before each class. It is a secured link for each local site, so the link will become available after registration is completed. Call the church office at 992-3030 or Peggy at (276) 759-1485 for information and registration. All are welcome.
