Fowlerville 1st UM Church holding Longest Night Service Monday, Dec. 21
Fowlerville 1st United Methodist Church invites you to a
Longest Night Service on Monday, Dec 21, at 6:30pm.
Some of you might be wondering what the “Longest Night” service is?
It recognizes that the winter solstice (Dec 21) is the longest period of darkness for our part of the world. The Christmas season is often marked by expressions of joy, excitement, and happiness. It’s a time for family to gather and for churches to worship pointing to the hope that is found in the coming of the Christ child.
However, this service also recognizes the “darkness” that many people go through at this time of the year, things such as grief over the loss of a loved one, or illness, divorce, loss of a job, loss of a home and other things too numerous to mention. Having suffered loss such as this, it can be a difficult time for many of us. And this with Covid-19 we have experienced many new challenges.
If you find yourself longing for the light of a “new day” and the light of Christ, you will not be alone as we share in the liturgy of prayer and reflection on the longest night of the year. You have the option of joining us in person at Fowlerville 1st UMC located at 201 S Second St, with face masks required, or on our Facebook site Fowlerville United Methodist Church. It will be LIVE or you may watch anytime following the service on our Facebook page. If you have questions, please contact the church office at 517-223-8824.
