HOPE through the holidays and beyond

The holidays are fast approaching, which usually means celebrations, joy, love and laughter.Posted November 22, 2013


Unfortunately for some, this may not be the case. For those that have lost loved ones, the holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s can seem anything but joyful or thankful.

Dakota Prairie Helping Hands is hosting a Service of Remembrance: “HOPE Through the Holidays and Beyond.”

This will be a time when anyone who has lost a loved one, whether recently or long ago, can join with others in hearing a message of hope.

Psalm 30:5 says “Sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.”

This does not mean that we forget the person or we miss them any less, but the pain can become easier to get through the holidays as well as all of the other days.

If you or someone you know has lost someone dear, please join us Sunday, Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. at Hettinger Assembly of God or Sunday, Dec. 8 at 3 p.m. at New Hope Worship Center in Lemmon.
