The First United Methodist Church of Fort Lauderdale GriefShare Group begins September 17, 2017 (please see the map on our home page). The group meets each week for fourteen weeks at 1:00-3:00 P.M. in Room #315. There is free parking in the church lot. Please contact Thomas Brown at 414-248-5966 with any questions.  
How GriefShare Works
It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. 
The sessions do not need to be attended in order. Each session is self-contained and you can begin at any place in the sequence.   (from the Griefshare website at https://www.griefshare.org/about)
​“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”

ON-GOING ​FUMC YOUTH PROJECT - HOMELESS CARE PACKAGES
Our Youth have assumed a project to assemble care packages to help benefit the homeless.  Each package
costs $7 to assemble.  Donations in any dollar amount are gratefully accepted.  Or you may purchase items
on their list  (click the link to the pdf list shown here).  For Easter, they assembled 100 packages ready for
distribution.  They invite you to take one or more packages with you to give to homeless you may see at
various locations throughout the city.

Space is currently available for our preschool and after-school programs. Children from 6 weeks to 4 years of age are welcome in the preschool program.
