Blue Christmas Worship Service

Friday, December 20, 2019

7:00 p.m.

A non-traditional service for those who are hurting, lonely or stressed. 

The constant refrain on the radio and television, in shopping malls and churches, about the happiness of the season, about getting together with family and friends, reminds many people of what they have lost or have never had. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation - all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrating and spending. We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern; we need to know that we are not alone.
For these reasons, Crete United Methodist Church offers a short, special service called “Blue Christmas”  on Friday, December 20 at 7:00pm.


Come out, and join with us in sharing and hearing prayers, scripture, and music that acknowledge that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who struggle  - and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.


Everyone, regardless of church background (or lack of it) is welcome.

CRETE UMC WORSHIP SERVICES AND IN CHURCH GATHERINGS SUSPENDED UNTIL till August 16th

Crete UMC Worship Services are scheduled to resume on Sunday,

August 16th.

 

Our first priority remains keeping one another safe. We care deeply for you, and remain committed to doing all we can for each other’s safety and health. To that end, I’m offering a word of caution, that the August 16th date should be treated as preliminary. We will keep assessing the situation as time marches on and will inform you immediately should any changes be made to this schedule.

The in-person ministries of the church will also resume on August 16, 2020. Our Boy Scouts and support groups will be able to meet in the church, following CDC guidelines. However, our Before and After School Program and Enduring Strings Program will be closed until further notice.

New in-Person Worship times beginning August 16th are
