Service of the Longest Night
Friday, December 21st at 7:00 p.m.
The seasons of Advent and Christmas are often marked by expressions of joy, excitement, and happiness. However, this time of joy and expectation can often the pain and hurt many experience during this season. The long nights just before Christmas are a struggle for those troubled by darkness, grief, and living with loss. Join us for the Service of the Longest Night as we seek God's healing light in the darkness and feel God's comfort in this beloved community.
