The Longest Night

SLIDE Longest Night 2023

The Longest Night Service
December 21, 2023 | 6:00 p.m. | Sanctuary

For those who have experienced loss, the holidays can be a particularly painful time, stirring up grief in acute ways. As a result, churches around the world have adopted the practice of having a “Blue Christmas” or a “Longest Night” service during the Advent season. In the Northern hemisphere, this service is often observed on December 21st, the Winter Solstice, which is the longest night of the year.

A Longest Night service is designed to provide space for prayer, reflection, and remembrance amidst the holiday hustle and bustle. We hope this offering may provide a space of calm, quiet, and healing for many.

Join the Rev. Elizabeth Link at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 21 in the Sanctuary for this meaningful time of worship.
