MHA in Niagara County is sharing this on behalf of the “Blue Christmas Service” organizers.
Most people think of Christmas as a happy time for families and friends. But for some people, the holidays just intensify feelings of sadness if they’re going through rough times. That why the Rev. Dr. Skilbred is offering the fifth annual “Blue Christmas” service at First English Lutheran Church in Lockport, NY.
Whether you are feeling blue, have lost a loved one to death, divorce or illness or are unable to recover your health, job or identity as you once knew it, the Blue Christmas service provides a coming together of people who understand that life has seasons of sadness and that grief needs room to breath in safe places. Members of the congregation and people from all walks of life in the community are invited to attend this special service.
When: Sunday, December 21, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm (sanctuary)
Where: First English Lutheran Church, 185 Locust Street, Lockport, NY.
