Blue Christmas Service

The Blue Christmas Service will take place Saturday, December 18, 2021 at 4pm in the Sanctuary.

What is a “Blue Christmas” Service?  This worship service is traditionally held on or around the longest night of the year, which falls on or about December 21st, the Winter Solstice. This it is sometimes called The Service of Reflection for the Longest Night.

For some, memories of past experiences and the pain of present experiences and situations can become overwhelming. Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or New Year’s Eve can be very difficult and a reminder of the challenges in our lives.

In this year’s service, we invite you to light a candle… to leave a name or a word on a blue paper ornament… to listen… to sing… to participate in communion… to come to the altar rail for Anointing/Comforting Prayer…  to receive a prayer shawl.

Address: 209 South State Street, Dover, DE
