Why do I need to come? To learn about and understand the topics listed above and why these are important for all ages. You should complete these documents when you are healthy and have the time to think about them before you make the decisions. It will ease the stress and pressure to learn about these documents and complete them before the crisis. When you are in the crisis, then you can apply the principles concerning these documents to the situation.

Who should come? All adults should attend. Unfortunately, accidents can happen at any age and people need to make their wishes known on a legal document in order for their wishes to be carried out. Don't wait for the crisis!

Online registration will help them plan but please come if you are not registered. If you have any questions, please contact, Shirley Brown at 920-542-8781 or church office at 920-563-4730.

The Circle of Weavers Grief Support Group

First Thursday of each month
6:30-8 PM

Please join us every first Thursday of the month for The Circle of Weavers - a grief support group for younger widows.

6:30-8 PM at Monona Lutheran Church, 5511 Monona Drive, Madison, WI.

The Circle of Weavers is a grief support group for women whose partner has died. The untimeliness of the death can present unique challenges for younger widows that may be different than their older counterparts.

Women in our groups are typically between 25-65 years of age and have experienced the death between one month to 8 years ago. We split into two groups to serve the needs of attendees.

The Circle of Weavers is a supportive, informal drop-in peer support group facilitated by a grief counselor.
