The Widowed Persons Support Group (WPG) began in October 2013 after discussions with Pastoral Care of the necessity to form such group. The group consists of members and friends of Paint Branch who have lost their spouse within the last 10 years. We meet once a month in the homes of our members and share a potluck dinner. We are not a grief support group which traditionally meets weekly and includes those who have lost any family member or friend. WPG offers a listening ear, concern, compassion and friendship for those who have lost their spouse and share this commonality. It has served as a wonderful outlet and support for the 10 to 12 current members.
