First-Centenary United Methodist Church To Host Grief Support Group Beginning In February

Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Forward is an ecumenical group which offers mutual support for those who have lost a spouse. 

First-Centenary United Methodist Church in downtown Chattanooga will host a new small group, seven sessions in all, beginning Saturday, Feb. 9, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., in the church parlor. 

These groups offer space for the newly and sometimes not so newly bereaved to share experiences and begin to find ways to step Forward into the future. 

If you or someone you know is interested in joining this group, contact Cindy Ruff at the church office at 423 756-2021. There is no charge for this group.
