First & Third Tuesdays 7:00pm-8:00pm

Two new support groups beginning in September 2017 meet on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 7:00pm-8:00pm in the FUMC Allen Parlor.
First Tuesday is a facilitator-led discussion on topics that affect us all: grief, loss, employment, finances, life changes, aging, relationships, and more.  Each month, we’ll let the discussion will guide us as we share in the many things that happen as we strive to live a Christ-like life in today’s world.
Third Tuesday is a facilitator-led discussion for parents, guardians, families, and friends of those who live the day-to-day activities of life with a child or young adult with learning disabilities and/or mental health issues.
