Any child or teen who has experienced the death of a parent, sibling, close family member or friend.
The age groups include ages 5-18. The groups are individualized and set up as Preschool/Kindergarten, Early Elementary, Late Elementary, Middle School and High School.
The accompanying parent or care-giver is encouraged to attend the parent/adult support group that meets simultaneously. The adult must stay on-site while their child or teen meets in group.
Children’s groups start with an opening circle to introduce themselves and a quick activity. Then they are off to process their grief through play in areas such as; high energy, game room, creative arts, dress up, sand & rice play, books & games, a giant parachute & foam noodles. Before they leave we have a closing circle to finish off the evening.
We are offering two groups this year, chose which night works best for your schedule, 1st and 3rd Mondays at Messiah Lutheran Church OR 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at Salvation Army.
Participants will meet from 6:30 – 8:00 PM. Come at 6:15 if you want pizza before group.
