BAY CITY OREGON
This is supposed to be the happiest season of the year. For some people, however, it is not. Death, illness, and geographic separation can all conspire to make us feel isolated, forgotten, and alone.
There is a growing attentiveness to the needs of people who are blue at Christmas.
Increasing numbers of churches are creating sacred space for people living through dark times. Such services are reflective, accepting where we really are, and holding out healing and hope.
Some churches hold a service of worship on the longest night of the year, which falls on or about December 21st, the Winter Solstice.
On the longest night of the year, December 21st, join us at Bay City United Methodist Church for a service of comfort and hope.
And then maybe consider creating a new Christmas tradition by joining us in celebrating that wondrous night when Christmas was born. It's a beautiful candlelight service of readings and carols telling the story of a night 2000 years ago that changed the lives of mankind.
