God’s Care for the Hard Times at Holidays
While taking part in our preparations for all the joyous special services and events of the Christmas season, our thoughts and prayers go out to those who struggle with grief, difficult feelings, and sad memories at this time of years. The feelings these persons are experiencing is hard to bear at any time. At Christmas, it is likely to be even more difficult. These are normal feelings. Our friends at Shared Lutheran Ministry of Fayette County are offering a Longest Night Service. This is an opportunity to connect with God and one another as we experience struggles and grief in this time.
Longest Night Service
Wednesday, December 21 at 6 p.m.
St. John Lutheran Church
5743 State Hwy 159 in Rutersville
This service is for all community members who struggle with the merriment of this season. We hope this worship service will create a safe and sacred space for people who need to feel the presence of our God who is with us even in the darkest times and to remember the hope brought into the world through Jesus Christ.
