Ruth Lott and Betsy Triznadel
At some point in our lifetime we are all confronted with sadness due to a loss. This could be caused by relocation, a broken relationship, separation, divorce, or death of a loved one, friend or pet. Every experience is different and manifests in various ways. Betsy Triznadel and I have accepted the challenge to form and co-facilitate a group to deal with some of the feelings and issues that arise as a result of the changes we encounter.
The Encouragers will begin meeting at 10 am the second and fourth Thursdays of the month beginning September 8th. We invite everyone who is experiencing grief/loss to join us as we endeavor to help each other deal and/or cope with adjusting to the changes that are occurring in our lives.
Initially we want to get acquainted and will openly share ideas to learn the interests, needs and expectations of each participant. Everything shared within the group will remain confidential and within the confines of our meeting. Programs will be structured around the information gathered and might include guest speakers, films, Bible study, writing, discussions of brief materials, etc.
If you would have an interest in joining us, please sign up at the kiosk in the church lobby, in the church office, or by completing the form to the left which will be sent to Kristie@HudsonFirstUMC.org.
When sad, read John 14; when experiencing loneliness or fear, read Psalm 23.
