    • grief share

      Beginning September 5  @ 5:30pm

      A GriefShare support group is a safe, welcoming place where people understand the difficult emotions of grief. Through this 13-week group, you’ll discover what to expect in the days ahead and what’s “normal” in grief. Since there are no neat, orderly stages of grief, you’ll learn helpful ways of coping with grief, in all its unpredictability—and gain solid support each step of the way.

    • wesleyan roots

      Two options: Tuesdays @ 2:00pm and Wednedsdays @ 6:00pm

      “Wesleyan Roots is different than a class in Methodist studies,” Rev. Dr. Middleton said. “Instead it is designed to highlight beliefs and practices that make United Methodism distinct from other Christian traditions.”
