GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays

Updated: Nov 4, 2021

The holiday season is fast approaching. If you are grieving the loss of a loved one, you are likely experiencing a jumble of emotions. Facing a holiday after the death of a loved one can be more difficult than your friends, or family, may realize. The GriefShare Surviving the Holidays video, discussion group and devotional materials will not only help you survive the holidays, but find strength, healing and tools to move forward in your daily walk through the deep pain of grief. Please join us as we work through grief during this holiday season. There are two opportunities to participate:


Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 9:00am to 11:am Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm


Melissa Ruehmer will be the facilitator and you may call her with any questions you may have at 343-3411. GriefShare is held at the First United Methodist Church, 120 N. Kellogg Street in Galesburg.
