December 14 - A Blue Christmas Worship Service

            5:30 PM - Blue? As in "I am feeling blue." Not everyone is up and cheery for the Christmas holidays. Dealing with the death of a loved one, facing life after divorce or separation, coping with the loss of a job, living with cancer or some other dis-ease that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations make parties and joviality painful for many people in our congregations and communities. This service is reflective, accepting of where we really are, and holding out healing and hope.
