A special service designed for those for whom the holidays might be difficult
December 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
At this time of year, this Advent Season, when many around us are filling up with excitement and anticipation for the celebration of something, new birth, new light, new life, hope, peace, joy, love, there are those amongst us who struggle in the darkness to find the “merry” in Christmas.
For those grieving the recent or impending death of loved ones, dealing with recent separation or divorce, struggling to find employment, or facing depression or family crisis, this can be a very isolated and dreary time. Every greeting and every song reminds the grief-stricken of how unhappy life is at this moment. We recognize that a lot of the Christmas celebrations do not meet everyone’s needs.
On Monday, December 16th at 7:30 pm., Trinity United Church in Huntsville invites you to a special service designed for those for whom the holidays might be difficult. If you have experienced a difficult loss, transition, or life change, the church cares about you and invites you to a special time of music and meditation.
