 A Blue Christmas Worship Service
Dec 7, 2017 At 7pm
First Presbyterian Church, 
600 W. Temple, Effingham
217.342.6272

For many, the Christmas season is a happy and exciting time. Yet, others find it to be painful and difficult. It may be the first Christmas after the death of a loved family member, or a time when a broken relationship is making life lonely. A current illness, broken relationship, or the insecurity of unemployment – any circumstance that causes one to feel very alone in the midst of all the celebrating and spending.

Our spirits sink as the days grow shorter. We feel “blue” and the world sees dark. We need encouragement and desire a closer connection to God.

For these reasons, First Presbyterian Church is offering a special “Blue Christmas” worship on December 20 at 7:00 p.m.

We invite you to join us in sharing and hearing prayers, scripture, music that acknowledges that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who are struggling – and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness and offers hope to those whose spirits are downcast. Everyone, regardless of church background ( or lack of it) is welcome.
