When the Holidays Hurt: A Gentle Service of Support – 2pm

A special worship service lead by the Pastoral Care Team, for those coping with grief, loss, and other struggles during the winter holiday season. There’s often grief and sorrow related to Christmas and the holidays being a little different than they used to be. This special service will be a chance to acknowledge that this can be a tough season for many of us.
