Christmas can be a painful time for some.
The constant refrain on the radio and television, in shopping malls and churches, about the happiness of the season, about getting together with family and friends, reminds many people of what they have lost or have never had.
We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern; we need to know that we are not alone.
We need encouragement to live the days ahead of us.
For these reasons,
the Rochester Reformed Church
is offering a special “Blue Christmas” service
Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 7:00pm
Come out, and join with us in sharing and hearing prayers, scripture, and music that acknowledge that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who struggle –
and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.
Everyone, regardless of church background (or lack of it) is welcome.
The short service will be followed by a brief time for light refreshments and fellowship.
