Blue Christmas Service for 2020

BLUE CHRISTMAS – Most of us like to think of the days leading up to Christmas as being all “merry and bright!” But for many, the Christmas season is a difficult time due to deep grief and sadness because of the loss of loved ones; concerns about employment, health issues or strained and broken relationships.

This service of scripture readings, meditative music and the lighting of candles and prayers will be posted at noon on our Paris First UMC Facebook page on Monday, December 21st, the “Longest Night” of the year. Symbolically, the day that follows will be when the daylight begins to grow longer again.
