December 6, 11:00 a.m.
Not everyone experiences happiness at Christmas. In this season of joy and love, many struggle with loss and grief. Calvary is creating a sacred and safe space for people facing loss. This quiet and meditative service of music, prayers and readings reminds us that God is with us wherever we may be, a light in the darkness. The service will be live-streamed at this time but will be available for viewing through the holiday season. Download a flyer.
December 19, 9:30 a.m.
Good Grief is a support group for anyone who is having difficulty with a loss. It may be a pet, a divorce, or death of a loved one...whatever it is you are suffering, feel free to bring yourself and share, if you wish, your hurt with a group willing to listen. Or listen to the stories of others. It all can help. People of any - or no - denomination are welcome. In fact, all are welcome.
Next meeting dates: January 30, February 27
