Emmanuel Congregational UCCwill hold a "Blue Christmas Service" on Wednesday, December 17th. We are located at 39 West Orvis St., Massena, NY. The time of the service will be at 7:30 p.m.
You ask why blue? Certainly you have experienced what some call the "blues" at one time or another in your life. Christmas time is a season when not everyone feels cheerful or even joyful. Coping with the death of a loved one, facing your first holiday season after a recent divorce or loss of a job, living with chronic illness or pain, clinical depression or battling a disease such as cancer all make holiday parties and festivities painful for many in our congregation and surrounding communities.
We invite you to join us in a time of worship to recognize those parts of our lives that make Christmas a bittersweet time of year. This worship offers a time to remember both persons and events that have been a part of our lives in the past, but are now changed or gone. Join us in a time of remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. Please come.
