Blue Christmas Service
For many people, the approaching Christmas holidays do not bring with them the joy and happiness advertised on television, or in greeting cards. The experience of loss, whether financial, job related, an illness, death, or caused by other stressors can bring with it feelings of sadness or grief. Finding peace can be difficult. New Wilmington Presbyterian Church will be offering a“Blue Christmas Service” on Sunday, December 6th at 6 PM This service will offer an opportunity to gather for a quiet time of hope and celebration in the midst of sadness or grief. This time is less about colored lights, and more about God’s Light which shines into our times of darkness. This worship is less about sparkling holiday cheer, and more about finding quiet, divine holiday strength. Open to the community, we encourage you to invite family or friends who may find the Christmas season a difficult time of year.
