Blue Christmas ~

   What is a Blue Christmas Worship Service, and why do we have one?  This service is for anyone who has                          experienced a loss in their life.  It could have been the death of a spouse, parent, brother, sister, or your best                friend.  Maybe it is your first year of being single after a divorce, or separation.  It matters not if your loss is recent        or from years ago, this is a service of healing, comfort, and hope.  If this is you, you are encouraged to attend this          service.  This year the service will be held on December 17, at 4:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, and is open to      everyone.  Pastor Denzel will be bringing the message.  The service will last under an hour, followed with coffee and    fellowship.  It is often referred to as the longest night service.
