Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Historic Chapel | Manchester UMC

Description: For some the holiday season can be filled with many mixed emotions as grief and sadness are a part of life as a glitter and glow of Christmas is all around us. In a time when the expectation is that everyone is happy and filled with joy, the shadow of darkness can fall across our hearts and our spirits.
Our Longest Night Service is designed to offer a safe place for the gathering of those who need respite for their weariness, their sorrow and their heartache. This service of hope and healing will be offered on Thursday, December 21, at 7:00 p.m. in the Historical Chapel.
