The holidays can be a very difficult time when we have lost a loved one. Emmanuel (Soest) is hosting a single evening event called "Surviving The Holidays" where you can learn how to navigate memories, emotions, invitations, and grief-related pain. This even will be held in the Christian Growth Center on Saturday, November 6, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. and will last for about two hours. Call Mary at (260) 705-0454 to reserve your spot. Each participant will receive a "Surviving the Holidays" guide. You do not have to be attending GriefShare to participate. This is a stand alone event.
