Join the church for a joyous holiday event.
Blue Christmas service Dec. 21
Christmas can be a lonely time for some of us.
McLouth United Methodist Church’s Blue Christmas Service will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21, at the church. This is a solemn and meditative service for all of us who don’t always feel the Christmas joy because of loss or trial and tribulation.
Please accept this invitation as a time to move from feeling “blue” to experiencing the wonder and hope of Christmas.
