Blue Christmas Service of Healing and Hope

December 21, 2022 7:00 - 8:00pm  |  First Church Sandwich, Gates Room (back fellowship hall)

There is a paradox of the Advent and Christmas seasons–a time when we feel we are supposed to celebrate hope, love, joy and peace, and yet it is a time that can also be full of depression, sadness and grief. The pandemic has lingered on, things have improved and yet there is still a heaviness in the air. We need a safe place to feel comforted and supported. This worship service will acknowledge the struggles that we all have faced during this uncertain time creating a space where it is okay to “just be”.  Whether you are grieving this holiday season, feeling the heaviness of the pandemic, or the darkness of the seasons; come find comfort, rest, and healing.

The quiet tone of the service testifies to the light in the darkness and struggles which holy family experienced which are often overlooked. Show yourself compassion and hold all that is sacred during this Christmas season.
