Blue Christmas

The Christmas season is often associated with joy and love; but for many, this time of the year magnifies loneliness, anxiety and grief. As others are celebrating it can make those who are hurting feel even more lost and alone. If you are in need of support this Christmas, please join us for the Blue Christmas service here at Sterling UMC.
