Blue Christmas at Covina Community Church

bluechristmascovinaBlue Christmas is a worship service that invites honest emotions and recognizes that many still walk in darkness. Grief, loss, traumatic change, or medical issues can have a serious impact on our experience of special events. Anniversaries of loss, or the first family gathering after a death can be difficult. Blue Christmas makes room for those feelings while claiming the promise that light will come into the darkness. This service is not just for those who are struggling, but those who walk with them and seek to be a comfort to all in need. Blue Christmas is a reminder of how difficult the first Christmas truly was and the adversity faced by the Holy family.

Join us as we remember, lament, and turn our eyes towards Christmas with a very honest prayer of hope.
