When grief strikes our feelings can feel insurmountable and overwhelming. Healing from grief and loss is a process. To
help us along that path, First Lutheran Church welcomes Johanna Hager who will facilitate an 8-session grief support group
on Thursday evenings. Johanna is a board certified, licensed clinical professional counselor. Beginning on October 24 and concluding on January 9, 2020 this support group will meet from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m. in Grace Place. Please sign up at the Welcome Center.
• Please Note: No group session on the following Thursdays: October 31,
November 28, December 26, and January 2, 2020
