Support Groups

Support groups are small groups of people interested in the support of others who are facing similar challenges. The groups are structured around the topic, led by trained facilitators and are a great resource for building relationships while growing through life's challenges. Support groups include, but are not limited to, grief, addiction, and illness.

To get connected to a support group, email Rev. Doug Meyer, Associate Pastor of Caring Ministries at dougm@tmumc.org.

Breathe: Support group for loss of spouse/ partner
We are a local support group composed of widows and widowers, resolved to create and provide a compassionate and safe environment for individuals who have lost a spouse or partner. This environment supports and encourages each individual’s unique path through healing from their loss. We are especially sensitive to the newly bereaved. We focus on comforting and supporting the newly bereaved through their healing from loss in meetings. Our group is a support group only. Facilitators are peers and not professional counselors or therapists. Because we are a peer-to-peer group, we don’t diagnose anyone or provide advice.
