Blue Christmas Worship Service 7:00 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 7
“Cries of ‘Merry Christmas!’ and non-stop caroling contrast with the feelings of many people at this time of year. For those suffering from the recent death or debilitating illness of a loved one, dealing with recent separation or divorce, struggling to find employment, or facing depression or family crisis, this can be a very isolated and dreary time. Every greeting and every song reminds the grief-stricken of how difficult life is at this particular moment. We recognize that traditional Christmas celebrations may not meet everyone’s needs. To fill this gap we are offering Blue Christmas. We invite you to this special holiday service designed for those who are finding this holiday season difficult. If you have undergone a hard loss, transition or life change, the church cares about you and invites you to this special time of music and worship.
