HAMPSTEAD — Hampstead Congregational Church, 61 Main Street Hampstead, will offer Blue Christmas: a Service of Remembrance, Comfort, and Hope, on Wed., December 18 at 6:30 p.m.
For many, the holiday season with its emphasis on family, joy, giving, and “good cheer” can be a painful time. The loss of a loved one, the anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, depression, the pain of isolation; all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrating.
You are invited into a space and time to acknowledge your sadness and concern. Please know that are not alone.
This Blue Christmas Service is a way to acknowledge the pain that the Christmas season can sometimes ignore and sometimes cause. Join us for this quiet contemplative service of prayer, scripture and music. All from the local communities are invited to this time of rest and reflection.
