BAXTER – A new round of bereavement support group meetings is kicking off at the Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Baxter. The group will meet from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. every Tuesday starting October 19.
After eight weeks, the group will meet every two weeks for a month, before deciding as a group whether or not to continue the meeting.
Pastor Erika Nilsen and Deb Bergstrom will lead this support group. Both have previously led these groups to help people cope with grief in a tolerant, non-judgmental manner. While this is not a substitute for counseling, organizers believe it is a good way to supplement grieving therapy.
Anyone with questions or interested in joining the group is invited to contact Tyler Jensen at the Lord of Life’s office at 218-828-9374 or Deb Bergstrom at 701-678-4053.
