The Steele Canyon Players & Instrumental Music Department PRESENT: A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas

The Steele Canyon High School Drama Department and Instrumental Music Department present the age-old beloved classic, A Christmas Carol – A Ghost Story of Christmas.

Show dates are Wednesday through Saturday, December 12, 13, 14 & 15 at 7 PM with a matinee performance on Sunday, December 16 at 2 PM.

All performances are in the Steele Canyon High School Theatre, 12440 Campo Road, Spring Valley. Tickets for all performances are $10 each and may be purchased online at www.schscougars.org, or purchased at the box office on the evening of performances.

Set in Victorian England, the play is adapted by Michael Wilson from the original work of Charles Dickens. This theatrical and spirited version puts the fantastical qualities of the classic tale center stage. A swirling, dancing chorus of ghosts weaves through this uplifting holiday story. Traditional Christmas music accompanies this tale of redemption, magic and hope that will certainly put you in the Christmas “spirit”.

This production is made possible by the generous support of Primary Residential Mortgage, Inc. and the Michael J. Slater Family.

GriefShare at Jamul Community Church

The GriefShare program at Jamul Community Church is restarting this fall!

Wednesdays 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm in the Adult classroom at Jamul Community Church (14058 Jamul Drive), starting on September 12th. Last meeting will be on December 5th.

SIGN UP HERE!

This program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Past participants have related how helpful the information and followup discussions were to them.

Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program.

Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
