PREPARING FOR THE LONGEST NIGHT
A TIME OF WORSHIP FOR COMFORT, HOPE & HEALING
Even during this season of anticipation and joy we recognize those, both in our midst, and around the world, who are in pain, suffering loss, and brokenhearted. On Friday, December 20, in preparation for the longest night of the year, we are offering an open time of reflection and prayer in the Chapel from Noon – 6:00pm for our church community to mourn with and for the broken-hearted during this season. Resources will be provided for self-guided prayer and reflection, as well as someone available to pray with or for you if you wish.
