Blue Christmas Service

Grace-St. Francis Community Church will be holding its Blue Christmas Service on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. For many people, the approaching Christmas holiday does not bring with it the joy and happiness that is advertised on television or in greeting cards. They may be facing a holiday after the death of a loved one or after a divorce. Perhaps they have been unable to have a child, or have suffered through an emotional trauma. Or perhaps they feel pressured and overwhelmed by holiday preparations. Perhaps they are looking foreclosure in the face and do not know where to turn. This service has quieter, more somber feel than a traditional Christmas worship service. Scripture, music and meditations focus on the comfort God offers during dark times and the light within the darkness. It is a service for anyone who finds it difficult to get into a jolly frame of mind at this time of year. All are welcome. (8th and Cornell Streets).
