Join us on Dec 21 at 7 PM in the EPICenter, for a simple service designed to acknowledge Jesus’ place in the “both/and”—the hopeful and the heavy, the joy and the loss, the celebration and the grief. Blue Christmas is a type of gathering in recognition of the darkness and loneliness that many carry into this season of light. All are welcome.
On Friday, Dec 22 from 5:30–8 PM we’ll be outside on the field by the pond roasting marshmallows, singing Christmas carols, hanging out with miniature horses and playing games to prepare our hearts for the gift of Christmas. Best of all, it’s FREE—bring some friends and family, and either lawn chairs or picnic blankets and we’ll take care of the rest.
• Drop off non-perishable food items during the week (M-F, 8:30 AM–3 PM) or during Sunday gatherings; supports Faith UMC Food Bank.Needed items: canned raviolis/spaghettios, tuna or canned chicken, canned soup, canned beans, rice, ramen noodles, peanut butter, cereal and pasta.
