A Longest Night service, sometimes called Blue Christmas, will be held on Thursday, December 21 at 7:00 p.m. This service will provide recognition that despite cultural expectations the time leading up to Christmas is not always filled with joy. Many struggle during this time of year with depression and other feelings of grief and loss. The Longest Night service, timed to coincide with the longest night of the year, is a service of recognition of those feelings of darkness and the yearning for healing.
