Coping with Loss During the Holidays –  Sunday, Nov. 5, 12:15 – 2:30 p.m.

Although the hustle and bustle of the holiday season can be stressful for anyone, loss intensifies the stress and can make Thanksgiving and Christmas especially difficult.  Loss comes in many forms.  You may be grieving the death of a loved one or dealing with the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.  Regardless of the type of loss, each of us is affected physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, and First Methodist Houston wants to support you during this holiday season.

First Methodist Houston is offering a workshop to help those who have experienced a loss face the holiday season with hope.  Coping with Loss during the Holidays is designed to provide practical suggestions for celebrating the holidays when your heart is breaking.  The topics covered will include setting realistic expectations, combining family traditions with new ones, self-care, and the role of faith in holiday celebrations.
