Surviving the Holidays
The holiday season can be difficult for those grieving a loved one’s death, so The Bridge Church will hold a “Surviving the Holiday” seminar and “Surviving the Holidays 4 Kids” 3 to 5 p.m. Nov. 5 at 3438 E. Ashlan Ave. The seminar will help participants prepare for the holidays; the children’s program is interactive, using games, arts and stories. There is no cost to attend.
Never miss a local story.
