Join us every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.
In the Service:
December 15, “Blue Christmas,” Rev. Sam Trumbore
This time of year is a very hard time to be feeling sad. With shopping, putting up a tree, decorating one’s home and holiday events and parties, everyone is expected to be of good cheer. Sometimes that just isn’t possible if we’ve experienced a major loss, have health problems, or just aren’t “feeling it.” Maybe “The Blues” can help.
Music: Ann Brandon
