Thursday, December 8:  Blue Christmas Service  7:30 PM In-Person and on Zoom.

Not everyone feels merry at Christmastime. Many are feeling ‘blue’ due to loss of a loved one, life after divorce or separation, illness, or loss of a job. It’s painful when others are celebrating and you’re grieving.

A Blue Christmas Service creates a sacred and safe space for people who are living through dark times. It’s a time for reflection, acknowledgment of the present reality, and the hope of finding light in the darkness.
