Facing a Holiday after the death of a loved one is difficult. You are likely facing a jumble of emotions that you’ve yet to sort out. The GriefShare Surviving the Holidays seminar is facilitated by caring individuals with a video and group discussion that can help you not only survive the holidays, but find strength, healing and tools to move forward in your walk through the deep pain of grief.
Please join us at Calvary Baptist Church on Sunday, December 3rd, 2:00-4:00pm. You’ll be welcomed by warm, caring people who understand what you are going through and who want to help. If you, or some one you know, would like to come or if you would like more information, please call Anne at 250-324-3034 or contact the church office 250-245-9121.
Surviving the Holidays is sponsored by the GriefShare program. GriefShare is a 13-week grief support group offered by local churches. Open to people of all faiths, as well as those who do not practice a faith. You do not need to be enrolled in a GriefShare group to attend the Surviving the Holidays group. Everyone is welcome!
