Blue Christmas-December 18th, 4:00 pm We invite you to a special Christmas service designed for those for whom the holidays might be difficult. Over the last few years, some have suffered from the death of loved ones, dealing with divorce or separation, struggling with unemployment, or facing depression or a family crisis. When you have gone through tough times like these, you can feel sad and alone in the midst of all the celebrating and joy of the season. You might struggle to see the light and feel tired from putting on a happy face. If you have undergone a difficult loss, transition, or life change, our church family cares about you and invites you to a special time of music and worship where we will acknowledge your pain, sadness, and loss. To recognize your pain and to offer healing and hope, we offer our Blue Christmas service on Sunday, December 18th at 4 pm in the sanctuary.
