“Understanding Your Grief” is based on Dr. Wolfelt’s Ten Touchstones - basic principles to learn and actions to take to help you engage with your grief and create momentum toward healing. If you're grieving a death recently or longer ago, this bestseller book and support group will help guide you as you journey through the wilderness of your unique grief. 


No need to pre-register; there is no cost.  Sessions are open to the public; attendance at every session is not required.  You can join at any time.  If this is of interest to you, join us as you can.   The church’s  phone is 574/533-7845.
