WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19TH AT 7 P.M.

Do the holidays make you blue? As in “I am feeling blue.” You aren’t alone. For many people, Christmas and New Year’s Holiday are not the season of joy and happiness that is advertised on television or in greeting cards. Blue Christmas Service is a time to gather for quiet reflection and to lift up in prayer our sorrows. Through this service of scripture, prayers for healing, music, meditation and acts of remembrance we are reminded of the comfort God offers during our darkest times.  The Blue Christmas Service is open to the community.
