The Christmas season can be hard for those whose hearts are hurting.
Reasons may vary from loss of a loved one or a job, a family member deployed, financial struggles… you fill in the blank.
You are not alone.
The Blue Christmas Service is a service of remembrance and hope. It is a gentle, contemplative service that acknowledges the loss and provides a sense of peace.
All are invited to come. In this service of prayer, candlelight and quiet music, we gather with neighbors and strangers as family made one by our grief.
We are not alone.

The Ohnward Fine Arts Center is planning their 13th Annual Festival of Trees.
Last year, they had such a wonderful response to their festival — with bidding on creative trees and beautiful wreaths and theatre entertainment. Their goal again this year is to create a holiday atmosphere to be enjoyed by all those attending the many functions that will be held at the Center. The proceeds will go to the Ohnward Fine Arts Center.
