Longest Night Service: Blue Christmas

Friday, December 21

7:00 p.m.



The holidays are not always easy. Some of us have lost loved ones this past year, are particularly lonely amidst the celebrations, or are just looking for a time of quiet expectation amidst the bustle of the season.


Come for a time of healing and hope in a quiet and reflective service designed just for you.


Acknowledge the darkness and welcome the return of the light!


There's a place for you here!
