The public is invited to attend the solemn Blue Christmas service at 2 pm Sunday, December 8

With a host of blue votive holders at the front of the sanctuary, the congregation will have an opportunity to hear reassuring words and music to provide comfort for those who find Christmas a challenging or sad time of year amid all the glitter and joy.  Each person may light as many candles as they wish in honor of their loss or losses, be it by broken relationships, lost employment, struggles with sobriety, medical issues, death or other reasons.  The quietness is soothing and the flickering candles provide a reminder that its okay if we are not be in a position to celebrate the season as depicted in the media.   
 
If you yourself are not suffering from loss, please attend anyway to support those that are suffering.
