Longest Night Candle Light Service

Print Article

Christmas can be a painful time for some. It may be the first Christmas without a loved family member; it may be a time that has always been difficult.

The constant refrain on the radio and television, in shopping malls and churches, about the happiness of the season, 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. We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern; we need to know that we are not alone.

For these reasons Libby United Methodist Church, at 713 Main Ave. will host a special “Longest Night” service on Friday, Dec. 21 at 7 pm.

Come out, and join with us in acknowledging that God’s presence is especially for those who are heavy burdened, for those who struggle - and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.

Everyone, regardless of church background (or lack of it) is welcome.
