For a view of the full calendar for the month, please refer to the link to the monthly newsletter, found on our home page. Below are some of the highlights. 

Upcoming Events:

GriefShare - Thursdays from 2 - 4 pm
Have you lost a loved one in the past? Do you wish to have a safe place to share your feelings of grief and loss in a supportive environment with others who have experienced loss? 

On Thursday, May 24 we have a new Griefshare Support Group starting at the Portage United Methodist Church. This support group is for anyone who has suffered a loss in their life, whether it be something recent or a loss that happened some time ago. 

Meetings are weekly, in a support group format, every Thursday from 2-4 pm from May 24 - August 16. Note we are off on Thursday, July 5 in observance of Independence Day. These meetings are open ended, which means you can join at any time - you won't miss a thing!

If interested in joining or you want to know more information, please call Misty McMorrow at 608-742-2107. You can also register online now - a new feature! Just go to, click on “Find a Group” and search for our group in Portage, Wisconsin. 

We hope you will join us!

We can also be found on YouTube. For past sermons visit Rev. Tom Countryman on YouTube.

Beginning July 9, 6:45 pm A 6-Week Study on World Religions at Portage UMC

Sunday May 20th: Confirmation Recognition ceremony during the 10:30 service to honor those who have graduated from Confirmation class.

You are invited to attend our 12 week Christian-based GriefShare Support Group at the Portage United Methodist Church! Here we provide a safe and confidential space for you to meet with others who have also experienced loss. We will journey through our grief through group discussion, utilizing our workbooks, and with helpful DVD videos. All are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation (or lack thereof).
There is no fee to join but we do provide a workbook (that is used weekly) and we do ask for $20.00 to cover the cost of the workbook. We do have scholarships available for those who are currently experiencing financial hardships.
Our session runs every Thursday from May 24th-August 16th (with a Thursday off the day after 4th of July) and are opened ended - meaning you can join at any time! We will be combining two sessions to make sure all content is covered and you will receive your schedule at your first session. We look forward to seeing you!

Graduation Recognition
Graduation Sunday is June 10th during the 10:30 service. If you, or someone you know is graduating from school (high school, college, etc) this year we welcome you to be part of the celebration. Please contact the Education Director, Misty McMorrow, by Sunday, June 3rd so we can make sure updated information is ready for the bulletin.
