Winter Solstice Service


Winter Solstice Service: Wednesday, December 21, 7 p.m.

Sometimes “merry and bright” is lonely and dark. Join us on Wednesday, December 21 at 7 p.m. for our Winter Solstice Service. We invite you to a time of peaceful worship, when we will bring our hurts, worries and fears. We will seek relief from pain, anxiety, loneliness and despair. We will rest in God.

The Winter Solstice Service is a non-traditional service with candle-lighting and communion, especially for those who feel lonely during the Christmas season. Also known as the Longest Night Observance, this type of service is usually scheduled near the time of the winter solstice–the darkest day of the year.
