Not everyone is filled with excitement and merriment during this holiday season. Sometimes, while the stores are filled with Christmas Carols and the world around us is decorated with lights and glowing colors and some homes are filled with laughter and parties there are people who are hurting or facing troubled times. Hurt, pain and sorrow come in both physical and emotional ways. This season, we want to reach out to those who may not be feeling like it is a Merry Christmas or may not be having a Happy Holiday Season.
This Blue Christmas Service offers a way for people to acknowledge and express their real feelings in a safe and non-judgmental place. There will be quiet music, prayer time and comforting words from the Holy Bible. Although there is sadness and grief, there is always hope and healing that can be experienced as we are surrounded by the compassionate love of God.
Come let us share in the truth of Immanuel – God with us!
