Blue Christmas Service

Blue Christmas is a service of remembrance and reflection for those who find the "ho ho ho" and frivolity of this season to be depression to them. If you have lost a loved one or are experiencing some hard times, this might be the type of service that would speak to you. There will be scriptures, poetry, and music with a gentleness that many need at this time of year. Blue Christmas will take place on December 14 at 7 p.m. at Grace-St. Francis Community Church at the corner of 8th St. and Cornell Ave. in Lovelock, NV. All are welcome.
