The LONGEST NIGHT
7:00 pm, December 21st
We know that Christmas is a difficult time for people who are grieving the loss of a loved one, or changes to their lives. In the midst of the joy and celebration, we will hold sacred space to pray, express sadness and grieve. This service is being presented online only so you can process these difficult thoughts in the comfort of your own home. Click below for the Facebook Livestream link.
