Blue Christmas, a service of hope and healing, will be held Wednesday, December 11 at 7 p.m. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 3725 SW Wanamaker Road. The service is for those whose heart is heavy because of burdens this past year or years.
The public is invited. There will be music, scripture readings, prayers, mediation, anointing, and the Lord’s Supper to acknowledge the feeling of loss and the assurance that God is at your side.
