For some people, the holidays do not bring joy and happiness: they may be experiencing grief after the death of a loved one or after a divorce. Couples may have been unable to have a child, or have endured an emotional trauma. Maybe just the pressure of the holiday preparations is overwhelming. Cross of Grace is reaching out to such individuals by offering a Blue Christmas worship service. These services have a more quiet mood than the traditional Christmas worship service, but are still filled with hope and grace.
