December 10th at 4:00 pm:  Blue Christmas Service of Light & Hope

The Blue Christmas worship service recognizes the fact that for many people Christmas is not a joyous time of the year. Sometimes in the pressures and stress of the holiday we forget what Christmas is really about. You are invited to relinquish the pain, anxiety, loneliness, sad, dark memories and fear to the One whose birth we all await... the Christ Child. This service will give you time to sing, pray, and meditate to find peace and hope about the true meaning of Christmas.
