Blue Christmas
Sunday, December 20 at 5:00 pm

Christmas is a time for memories and remembering. For some, the memories are of beloved family members or friends who have died, and the pain of their loss is still real. For others, the memories are of happier times than we know now, as the anguish of broken relationships or the anxious insecurity of unemployment or poor health cloud this season.  We need to remember, and we need the space and place to acknowledge our sadness and concern; and we need to know that we are not alone. For this reason, we invite you to a special time of being together to receive the words of strengthening and hope that speak to us in the midst of sorrow.

Please come and join us to hear and share prayers, scripture, and music that help us to remember that God’s presence is for those who mourn and God’s word comes to give light to our darkness.  We encourage you to feel free to invite anyone you feel might benefit from this special time of worship.
