Blue Christmas Service


Friday, December 20th

6:00 pm

This service of song, scripture and silence is held on the longest night of the year. A “Longest Night” service or a “Blue Christmas” occurs close to the time of the winter solstice of the winter solstice. This gathering provides a space for those who are having a difficult time during the holidays or simply need to acknowledge a pain or loss they are carrying in the midst of this season.  We know it can be difficult to fully engage in the joyful celebrations of Christmas.

  • anyone can participate-children, adults, no experience necessary!
  • worship assistants, ushers, communion assistants, lectors, greeters, A/V team, acolytes, altar guild, etc.
  • contact the office at faith@faithgoshen.com or 574-533-5760 if you are interested in serving and want more info or have questions about these ministries
