Blue Christmas (Longest Night) service
 
 Friday, December 19 at 7:30 pm.
 
Christmas can be a difficult time for some.  It may be the first Christmas without a loved family member who has recently died; it may be a time that has always been difficult.
The constant refrain in the media and in our churches, about the happiness of the season, may remind us of what we have lost.  The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation—all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrating and spending.  Our spirits may sink as the days grow short- er.  We may feel the darkness growing deeper around us…
We need encouragement to live the days ahead of us; we may need space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern, to know that we are not alone.
For these reasons, the First United Methodist Church is offering a special “Blue Christmas/ Longest Night” service on Friday, December 19 at 7:30 pm.
Everyone is invited, regardless of church background (or lack of it), to join with us in sharing and hearing prayers, scripture, and music that acknowledge that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who struggle—and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.
The short, meditative service will be followed by a brief time for light refreshments and fellowship.
