In recognition of the difficulties of navigating the holidays in the midst of grieving, Bethel Congregational United Church of Christ is offering “Good Grief--it’s the Holidays!” on Saturday, November 17, 2012, from 10 am until noon in the Narthex Conference Room. If you attended Bethel’s “Good Grief!” class this summer you’ll want to come for a refresher from the perspective of coping with the holidays. If you did not attend that class, you’ll want to come to explore ways to enjoy the holidays while honoring the memory of a lost loved one or other loss.
This Sunday is our Stewardship Sunday, so please bring your pledge cards and Time and Talent sheets.
