Grief support meetings are being held each Tuesday afternoon at the Community United Methodist Church from 4 to 5:30 p.m. These nondenominational meetings are free and are open to the public.

The first meeting was on Tuesday, July 25. Seven more meetings are scheduled for each Tuesday afternoon through Sept. 12.

To experience grief can be a difficult time for many people. Professional counselors say that sharing the experience with others in grief is an effective way for a person to heal.

Each grief session is self-contained, so a person does not have to attend in sequence. People can come for one, several or all of the sessions.

The church is in downtown Pagosa Springs at 434 Lewis St. Interested persons can call the church office at 264-5508 for additional information. The Rev. Leighton Mekeal is pastor of the church.
