Pastor Nate leads a service that is sometimes called Blue Christmas and sometimes called the darkest night service. This is a service for those struggling to find the joy and hope in the holiday seasons. The 21st is also the longest night of the year (winter solstice). On this night we gather in a reflective and somber service that can help participants work through some of the pain and loss that they may be feeling. We offer a time of anointing, lighting candles of remembrance, listening for God, and a time of sharing space for those who have lost a loved one or friend recently or in years past. It is open to all who would like to come, so please invite friends, neighbors, and family members to join us on this evening. A time of fellowship with light refreshments follows the service.
