Blue Christmas Service: The holiday season ought to be a time of joy as we eagerly await celebrating the birth of Jesus. However, for many, this season stings with reminders of the loss of loved ones, broken relationships, illness, or other situations that make celebrating difficult. Join us for a service of comfort as we gather near the winter solstice, the longest night of the year.
