Thursday, December 21, 2023: Longest Night Service (in-person only at 7:00 p.m.)
This season can be a painful time for some. Our spirits sink as the days grow shorter. We feel the darkness growing deeper around us. This might be the first year without a loved one who has recently died; it may be a time that brings up difficult memories.
We need encouragement to live the days ahead of us. But we also need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness and concern. Perhaps most of all, we need to know that we are not alone. For these reasons, Oak Grove Presbyterian Church offers a special “Longest Night” service. Join with others in sharing prayer, hearing scripture, and music that acknowledges God’s presence is for those that mourn, for those who struggle, and that God’s word comes to shine light in our darkness. The short service will be followed by a time for light refreshments and fellowship.
