A Service of Light (Amid a Time of Shadows)

Starts:     Dec 01, 2016 @ 7 p.m.   Ends:     Dec 01, 2016 @ 8 p.m.  

On Thursday, December 1, St. John's will be holding a Service of Light in the Family Life Center at 7 p.m. 

Many of us recognize that Christmas can be a bittersweet time of the year.  The constant sentiments we hear about getting together with family reminds many of us of loss - loved ones or relationships - or perhaps what we never had. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation: all these can make us feel very much alone in the midst of the festive season.   We need space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern.  We need to know that we are not alone.  We need to know God's presence during this season. 

If you feel drawn to this service, please join us on December 1; it will offer us a time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. 

  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.
