Special Upcoming Events

.Blue Christmas Service – Thursday, December 19th at 7:00 PM.
Each Christmas season, it seems like the whole world is jolly and happy. But for many people that’s just not how we feel during the holiday season. There are many in our communities that feel blue – due to many different circumstances: loss of a job, being alone for the holidays, living with the consequences of divorce, or the death of a loved one.
This Christmas season, in an effort to reach out, our two churches are offering a special “Blue Christmas Service.” It will be held at the Worcester United Methodist Church on December 19th at 7 pm. This irregular and brief ritual is intended to offer space and comfort enough so to honor the pain, loneliness, isolation, and suffering many of us are feeling during the hype of this season. It is our hope that this special service will provide each person with the opportunity to reconnect with the One who brings light into the darkness.
All are welcome. Consider inviting and bringing a friend. We will hear mini-reflections, sing some songs and light a candle to bring light to the darkness of these days. Let us seek the Spirit of Christmas among us?
Blessings this Christmas Season
Pastor David

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service – Tuesday, December 24th at 7:30. This will be a traditional Christmas Eve service with singing of many favaorite Christmas hymns, lighting of candles, special music, and some scripture readings. We have flameless lights for young children or those who would prefer them. Please join us for this special service as we celebrate our Lord and Saviors birth.
