Understanding Grief

Grief is a natural response to experiencing the death of a friend or loved one. This non-denominational support program will help attendees cope with the many grief reactions an individual may face.

“Our support group is designed to help those navigating through grief in our community by providing hope, healing, and essential coping skills that can better enable them to move forward and thrive even after experiencing loss,” said Rev. Bradley.

The course is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required.
