In the church, Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus, the coming of the Light of the world. We remember the scripture stories, sing Christmas hymns and carols, enjoy children’s pageants, and anticipate candlelight, communion and Christian fellowship. In the secular world, the Christmas season is a time for shopping marathons, TV specials, and seemingly endless gaiety.

But what about those who feel left out of all this for some reason? What about those for whom the joy of the season is absent? People who are struggling with relationships, coping with loss, weighed down by illness or financial difficulties? They – we- need the assurance of God’s love for us just as much. They – we- need to be reminded that the Light of the world came for us, too.

The Blue Christmas service is a celebration of the Light of Christ for all people, in all circumstances. It is a service of light and hope, of readings and music, of compassionate community and the assurance of grace, at Christmas and always.

So please come. Bring a friend. Come to celebrate the real promise of the season and be uplifted by the Light of Christ.
