Growing thru Grief: Have you or someone you know lost a loved one and are journeying through grief? There is a free, open, confidential program sponsored by a coalition of area religious and civic organizations to offer year-round support and education to those who mourn.
It meets weekly on Tuesdays at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 1200 W. Cornwallis, Durham. Refreshments and registration begin at 4 p.m., followed by presentations and discussion from 4:30 until 6, led by professionals and trained facilitators.
Upcoming topics include “Reflections on Time,” led by Bill Dahl, on January 3 and Music on January 17. Pastor Scott Anderson will lead the session on January 31. Small group discussions are the focus on weeks without a formal presenter. All are welcome!.
