While Christmas should be a time of joy, many people have mixed feelings, or even feel distress, at Christmas Time. Loneliness, depression, grief, financial hardship, family disharmony, are but a few of things that keep the season of our Savior's birth from being a time of wholehearted joy. While we might wish this weren't the case, we do well to worship the Christ child in a spirit of honesty, and letting Christ tend to our need for healing. It is for this reason that St. John Lutheran will be hold a “Blue Christmas Service,” Wednesday, December 19, 2012 @ 7:30 p.m. The service is specially designed to be of comfort to those who have a hard time at Christmas.
St. John Lutheran Church is encouraging ALL members of our community, who are “Blue” to join us for this service. But even if you aren't “Blue” you are still invited to come & support others with your presence, and to experience a more solemn spirit of preparation for Christmas.
