Health and Wellness Programs Offered by the Wesley Nurse Health Ministries™

The Wesley Nurse at First United Methodist Church invites you to take part in two ongoing free programs open to all citizens in the Mason area. The first program is the Walk 2B Fit program held in the Social Hall at the Methodist Church. It is held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. There is no reason you can’t have fun and be fit at the same time while enjoying the camaraderie of other men and women just like you. Come join us and find out for yourself!

The second ongoing program is the Grief Support Group. Grief can be especially intense during the holiday season. The focus of the support group is to offer a time of listening and caring while participants are working through the loss of someone, or something dear to them. Participants are welcome to bring someone with them so they do not have to come alone. Grief is the emotional suffering that is felt after a loss of some kind and can be triggered for a variety of reasons: the death of a loved one, the onset of a serious medical condition, or even an intense disappointment can all cause grief. People are so often unprepared for grief, even when an event is predicted. Participants will learn that grief is actually a healing process that is normal and healthy. The leader for this group is Patrick Loring, M.S., L.P.C., the bereavement coordinator for Odyssey Hospice in Kerrville, Texas. He has 25 years of professional counseling experience. The program is every first and third Tuesday of each month at 12:00 p.m. in the conference room at the Methodist Church. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided. The program is scheduled during the lunch hour to help accommodate those who work outside the home.

The Methodist Church is located at 224 Broad Street. For further questions or information, please call Ann Scarth, RN at 325-347-5983.
