Church to start grief support, Tuesday gathering programs


Sun Lakes United Methodist Church is starting two programs next month – Grief Recovery and Support facilitated by Pastor Judy Wismar Claycomb and Tuesday Nights Together.

The church, 9248 E. Riggs Road, is offering the 8-week Grief Recovery and Support program starting Sept. 14 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 4 of the Education Building. The program is designed to offer help and encouragement after the death of a loved one and serves as a support group to help rebuild one’s life after a loved one dies. 

The Fall 2022 series begins with a two-hour seminar specifically geared to loss of a spouse.  Subsequent weeks will be 90-minute gatherings with a video presentation featuring testimonies from people’s recent experiences of the death of a loved one, integrated with teaching by experts in the field of grief recovery. 

For more information or to make a reservation and pick up the workbook, which is $15, call the church office at 480-895-8766. 

Tuesday Nights Together (TNT) is a series of free programs every month. Topics vary from light and entertaining to serious and informing. A light meal will be offered for a free-will offering at 5:30 p.m. and the presentation starts at 6 p.m.

On Sept. 13 the topic is “Bites and Stings: How can you stay safe in our desert environment.”

Participants can learn about the U.S. Poison Control System with its state connections and Banner’s poison control resources and find out what to do if someone is bitten or stung.

Guests also can learn how to identify and precautions you can take when it comes to poisonous vegetation in the desert.
