Longest Night Service
December 21, 5:30 p.m. at Hilton Christian Church
The Longest Night Healing Service will be held at Hilton Christian Church on Friday, December 21 at 5:30 p.m.  This time of healing is offered in recognition of how hard the Advent and Christmas seasons is for many people, especially those who are grieving a loss. The service will incorporate times for remembering loss and reclaiming hope as we light candles to push the dark away from the sacred space. This service will not be pointedly Christian; communion will be available but it will not be incorporated into the liturgy.
