  • The Blue Christmas Service is on Thursday, December 21st at 12 Noon.
    This will be held at First Lutheran Church and this year the theme is: When Christmas Hurts. You are then invited to a Fellowship Luncheon at The Forty Club immediately following. (Lunch will be on your own). It is a wonderful time of conversation and sharing a meal together. We will not be holding an evening service this year.

    Why do we have this? For some people the holidays are not joyful; they are lonely, in mourning, feeling alienated and cast apart from family celebrations; they are experiencing depression and sadness and yet are often compelled to “put on a happy face” for others, denying their true feelings.

    You are welcome and encouraged to bring a memento or a picture in remembrance of the person you are grieving to be placed on the candle table on December 21st.
