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.
