The holiday season is often very difficult for those who have experienced loss and hard times during the previous year. Yet the very message of Christmas is one of hope and comfort. Is it possible to experience joy even when you feel the grief of the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, the worry and discouragement of an illness, the disappointment of dreams abandoned? A LONGEST NIGHT service is an opportunity to acknowledge the reality of life and thus be freer to experience the joy that is the Christmas celebration. You are invited to join us for a very beautiful and moving Longest Night service on Sunday, Dec 16 at 5 pm in the historic 1789 Chapel for Commack United Methodist Church. The Chapel is on the north side of the property. You can contact us at 499-7310 or check our website www.commack-umc.org.
