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 (The current session of GriefShare ends Thursday, December 21. The next session is scheduled to begin on Thursday, January 18, from 2-4 pm. Please call the church office with your interest in attending.)
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, January 25th 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 January 25th - April 19th (note we are off on Thursday, March 29th in observance of Maudy Thursday). 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!
