A very special holiday worship experience on December 22 at 6:00 p.m.
In every church and community there are persons who, for one reason or another, simply cannot enter into the joy of the Christmas season. Some are dealing with the recent or expected death of a loved one. Some are coping with the aftermath of divorce, job loss, sickness, or other unfortunate and tragic circumstances. Christmas parties and caroling are the last things some of us want. The Blue Christmas service is an attempt to minister to the needs of such persons while still recognizing that part of the reason for Jesus' coming was to bring hope and comfort, to heal the sick, to seek the lost, to restore the broken and broken-hearted. For the second year, St. Stephen's is offering a quiet, meditative worship service that makes time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. Join us on December 22nd at 6:00 p.m. for a time of special music, scripture readings, silent reflection, healing prayer and communion. If you would like more information on this very special Christmas worship experience, please call the church office at 936-336-3762.
