Blue Christmas Service
Is Christmas a blue time for you?
The Christmas season is often associated with joy, love, generosity and unity. But for many, this time of year magnifies loneliness, anxiety, grief and despair. As others are celebrating it can make those who are hurting feel even more lost and alone. Sterling UMC’s Blue Christmas Service is designed to come alongside those who are hurting this Christmas Season and meet everyone where they are – in their mess, in their grief, in their hurt – and offers hope through the birth of Jesus Christ. In a sermon based on the book Blue Christmas by Todd Outcalt we will learn that even our darkest Christmases can be filled with honesty and hope in our Savior as we lay our fears and anxieties before Him.
If you are in need of support this Christmas season, Sterling UMC will be holding a Blue Christmas service on Monday, December 16 at 7:00pm for those who are struggling with loss or loneliness in this season of celebration.
