Trinity Lutheran Church to host Blue Christmas service


Staff report



VERSAILLES – Trinity Lutheran Church will host a Blue Christmas service on Thursday, Dec. 17.

Is this Christmas season a time of mixed emotion for you? It is a time to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. However, not everyone is up and cheery to celebrate the Christmas holidays! Dealing with the death of a loved one; facing life after divorce or separation; coping with the loss of a job or friendship; living with health issues; and a number of other situations that make the Christmas season “blue.”

For this reason, Trinity Lutheran Church at 204 E. Wood Street in Versailles will be having a Blue Christmas Worship Service on Thursday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. This service is unique in that it seeks to give space and time for loss in the midst of celebration. In this service, quiet songs and contemplative readings offer support and strength for the journey through the holiday season.

Our hope is that worshipers will hear the word of God at this special service and will move from sadness to comfort and hope.

This service is open to the entire public. We hope that you will feel comfort in joining us for this special worship as we share in one another’ s sorrows as well as the joy of the birth of the Christ child.

Have a Blessed Christmas Season!
