Blue Christmas services in McMinn County, Tennessee

There will be a Blue Christmas Service in McMinn County, Tennessee. The holiday season can be difficult for people who are undergoing stress, have experienced a loss or for anyone who is overwhelmed by the season.

A Blue Christmas service is a quiet time of renewal where those who are a little down, can be lifted up. The service is open to anyone who needs some encouragement this holiday season.

Whether it is from the death of a loved one, dealing with sickness or family trouble, work problems or whatever, we sometimes feel out of step or out of place when everyone else is celebrating.

The service schedule for 2012 is:
Friday, December 21
11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.Wesleyanna United Methodist Church
Athens, Tennessee

Sometimes we feel bad for feeling bad. A Blue Christmas service offers a place to acknowledge feeling blue and hopefully find some comfort.

The Blue Christmas service will include music, a devotion and Holy Communion. Attendees will have the opportunity to light a candle in honor of a loved one. As always, you may choose to participate in any part of the service or not, depending on how you feel.
