The Grief Support Group was started in December 2013 at First Baptist Church. Originally, the group’s focus was specifically for grief support for those who had lost a spouse or significant other. However, the Grief Support Group has expanded to meet the needs of other types of grief. The group now offers support not only for the loss of a loved one but also for grief experienced through the loss of a home, a job, health, a spouse to a nursing home, etc. because grief comes in many forms, not just from someone dying.
Currently, the Grief Support Group meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:00 pm in the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. The group often hosts a guest speaker who specializes in dealing with grief or a speaker to address topics we don’t often consider following the loss of a loved one, home, job, etc.
