Christmas Service of Remembrance and Hope

CHRISTMAS SERVICE

OF REMEMBRANCE AND HOPE

Friday, Dec. 21 6:30 pm

First Presbyterian Church

300 East Main Street

In the aftermath of the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, we are reminded once more that Christmas can be a painful time for some. In the face of loss, we struggle to find joy in this season. For some this may be the first Christmas without a loved family member who has recently died. We would like to invite you to a community Christmas worship on Friday, December 21 at 6:30 pm at First Presbyterian Church. This will be a quiet service of remembrance and hope. We will light candles for the loss of loved ones. We will also light special candles for the victims of violence of last Friday’s tragedy. We will hear through Scripture and music that God’s presence is for those who struggle and mourn and how God’s Word offers us strength as a light shining into our brokenness.   

 

Event Date and Time:

6:30pm to 7:30pm
