The St. Mark’s UMC Chronic Illness and Pain Support Group currently meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month in the church library. We offer a time of prayer during each meeting and time to share personal joys and concerns, as you are comfortable. Our group is friendly and welcoming. We do not compare pain. We do not share, or ask questions about specific treatment options, doctors, therapists or other health care options during the meeting, but sometimes people discuss these things before or after, and that’s OK. We want to help each other whenever we can, and we often make needed connections as we share together. At each meeting, we remind ourselves that we are meeting in a safe space as we listen and share, and everyone’s confidentiality is respected and held.
