Christmas can be a painful time. Grief, anxiety, poor health, and other burdens can make us feel alone in the midst of others’ celebrations of the season. The longest night of the year, the winter Solstice, falls just a few days before Christmas.
On December 20, we will gather together out of the darkness of the season for a quiet, solemn worship service. Please join us for a time of Scripture, music, prayer, candle lighting, and communion. Feel free to invite friends who might appreciate this time set apart to name the darkness in the world and in our lives, and to prepare our hearts for the coming of the light of Christ.
