BLUE CHRISTMAS OR THE LONGEST NIGHT SERVICE  

Tuesday, Dec 21, 6pm

Our guest for this service is Rev. Ken Cross, Director of the Atlanta -Marietta District Counseling Service.  Rev. Cross brings a special expertise in dealing with the many issues that we face during the holidays.

Christmas can be a painful time for some.  The constant refrain about the happiness of the season, about getting together with family and friends, reminds many people of what they have lost, or have never had. The anguish of broken relationships, the insecurity of unemployment, the weariness of ill health, the pain of isolation—all these can make us feel very alone in the midst of the celebrating and spending.

We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern, and to know that we are not alone. Our spirits sink, as days grow shorter and we feel the darkness deeper around us. We need encouragement to live the days ahead of us.

For those reasons Fields Chapel offers a special “Blue Christmas” or “Longest Night” service on Tuesday evening, December 21st at 6:00pm.

Come and join with us in sharing and hearing prayers, scripture and music that acknowledge that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who struggle—and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.

CARD MINISTRY

JAMES HOUSE MINISTRY

The James House is a facility at The Ranch that provides space for tutoring and housing guests and work teams.  The facility is built, however it needs to be furnished to meet the various needs.  As a Christmas gift to the entire Ranch, we are collecting funds to help furnish the James House.  Your gifts will be received anytime!  Contact:  Terri at christmas@fieldschapel.org (christmas null@null fieldschapel NULL.org?Subject=James House Ministry)
