All of us experience grief differently, and we have a dedicated ministry at VHUMC focused on providing loving care and support to those who have are suffering the loss of a loved one. As part of that ministry, we periodically offer our Grief Support Groups to help you during your grieving process. Our goal is to provide a loving environment with trained leaders who facilitate these grief support sessions. Participants learn valuable ways to cope with their grief, and they are able to share with others who have experienced the loss of spouses, children, parents, and siblings. Our sessions are community-focused, and take place in a warm and caring environment. Our session leaders follow proven resources devoted to grief support.
The group meets on Wednesday evenings to dine together at 5:30 pm, with the sessions beginning around 6:00 pm. The sessions last about one hour, and meetings typically conclude around 7:00 or 7:15 pm. There is no cost for our Grief Support Group, and part of the joy of our ministry is also in furnishing dinner for all participants. Our upcoming spring Grief Support Group will meet for seven sessions beginning on Wednesday, March 4 through April 15. Meetings will take place in room 203, near Tyson Hall. For those who may be unfamiliar with VHUMC’s campus, we advise you to enter through the Tyson Hall entrance, where signage will direct you, and where greeters will be waiting to help you get settled.
Although you are not required to attend every meeting, you are encouraged to make as many sessions as possible for the benefit of you and for others in the group who are helped by your attendance and participation.
