Blue Christmas event set at First Baptist Church

“Blue Christmas” will be held Monday, Dec. 10, 7 p.m., at First Baptist Church of Southington, continuing the church’s tradition of offering a worship service for people who are feeling a loss during the holidays. The loss may be due to the death of a loved one, divorce, unemployment, financial problems, for anyone who is struggling to find joy and peace in this season.

The Rev. Jerrie S. Matney, interim pastor of First Baptist Church, and The Rev. Sandy Koenig, pastor of Plantsville Congregational Church, will lead the program. The service will include worship, prayer and special music. There will also be time to hang a commemorative ornament on the Christmas tree in honor or in memory of a loved one.

There is no charge to attend and all people are welcome regardless of their denomination or faith.

For more information, call the church office at (860) 628-8121.
