The Longest Night Service

December 20, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

With each passing day of December, the amount of daylight shortens and the darkness becomes more prevalent. Some people are very sensitive to this naturally occurring phenomenon, and that sensitivity affects their spirit as well as their mood. Then too, as we draw closer to the holiday, sometimes we feel out-of-place: we get depressed and don’t want to be; or we get so busy “doing Christmas” that we lose sight of “being in Christmas.”

On Friday night, December 20th, at 6:30 p.m. in our sanctuary, we are going to hold our first ever Longest Night Service which will coincide with the shortest day of the year. This will be an intimate and informal gathering of our community. The meditations, songs and Scriptures will illuminate our shadows so that, in faith and hope, we are better able emotionally and spiritually to welcome back God’s coming light.

Maybe you’ll be looking for perspective; maybe you’ll need a little hope and good news; or maybe you’ll just want something spiritual before you go shopping on the last Friday before Christmas… It is our hope you will find this service the lift to your spirit for which you’ll be searching.
