Christ Church would like to invite you to a Blue Christmas Service. Blue Christmas? Yes, Christmas can be a painful time for some. It may be the first Christmas without a loved one; it may be a time that has always been difficult. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation… all these can make one feel alone in the midst of celebrating and holiday joy. An opportunity to acknowledge sadness and concern and to know that others share these feelings can offer encouragement for the days ahead.
Come and hear prayers, readings, and music that acknowledges God’s presence for those who mourn and struggle … and that God’s Word comes to shine light into the darkness. All are welcome.
