Longest Night Service (Blue Christmas)
Worship with Those Who Mourn
Thursday, December 21, 2017

6:30 p.m. - Blue? Yes, blue as in the blues. As in "I am feeling blue." Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other disease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregations and communities.

     We would like to help make this time a little brighter for you and your family. We are holding a worship service on Thursday, December 21 at 6:30 p.m. to create a sacred space for all those living through dark time. During this service we will strive to bring God's healing light, grace and hope to you as you journey through this time. Pastors will be present for support. Please join us.
