It hurts to lose someone. Find help as you journey through the stages of grief.
Welcome to the First Lutheran Church Grief Support Group. This group will meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM and we will meet for 8 sessions. We will gather at First Lutheran Church, 1000 Third Avenue SE, in Room 310. The group will be led by Pastor Bradway from First Lutheran and a social worker and is available to anyone in the Cedar Rapids area who is grieving the loss of a loved one. There is a charge of $8.00 per person to help cover the cost of materials for the group. Please sign up for the group by April 21st.
The group will provide an opportunity to talk with others who may share similar feelings and the opportunity to support one another. Education will also be provided to assist participants in understanding the grief they are currently experiencing. If you have questions please contact Pastor Leroy Bradway, First Lutheran Church, at 319-365-1494 or leave a message at the church office.
