“Surviving the Holidays”
We at West Grove UMC understand that the holidays are not always a time of joy for everyone. We are offering a one-evening class from GriefShare entitled “Surviving the Holidays.” The folks at GriefShare Ministries have wisdom to share:
“The holiday season has begun. This might be the first holiday after your loved one’s death, or maybe it’s the second, third, or beyond.
In the coming days, you are going to be facing some tough emotions. And due to the nature of Thanksgiving and Christmas—with its focus on family, yearly traditions, expectations, social events, and “cheer” – the emotions can blindside you.
You can lessen the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and being prepared.
Surviving the Holidays is here to help.
…You will watch a video, be part of a discussion group, and receive a Survival Guide with daily encouragement and helpful exercises for the days ahead.
These tools will enable you not only to survive the coming holidays, but also to face them with a measure of peace and assurance.1”
Please call the church office to reserve a space at 610-869-9334. We are located at 300 N. Guernsey Road, West Grove, PA 19390.
