Christmas can be a lonely time for some of us. At 7 p.m. Dec. 22, the McLouth United Methodist Church will offer a "Blue Christmas" service for those who will be missing someone special at Christmas. Broken relationships, insecurity due to unemployment, illness, isolation, the loss of a child, the loneliness of no longer having a beloved spouse to share each day, the loss of a dear family pet -- all these can contribute to the feelings of loneliness and being blue. We need to know that we are not alone. Join in sharing and hearing prayers, Scripture and music proclaiming God's Word that shines light into our darkness. The brief service will be followed by a time for light refreshments and fellowship. This is open to everyone in the community.

Pleaseeep our military troops and their families in your thoughts and prayers during this Christmas season.
