Christmas time is not all holiday cheer for those who have experienced a loss, whether it be the passing of a loved one or a pet, coping with loss due to divorce or the loss of a job, dealing with an unknown future due to cancer or other illness, or many other of life's circumstances. Valpo FUMC is providing a sacred space for those living through dark times. Our Longest Night Service offers this reflective service for those holding out for healing and hope.

This service is held on the Winter Solstice, which is also the traditional feast day of St. Thomas the Apostle. As Thomas struggled in his belief in the resurrection of Jesus, this Longest Night which falls just before Christmas is a time for dealing with the darkness and grief faced by those living with loss.

Everyone in our community is welcome to find comfort and understanding during our Longest Night Service. fIf you know someone who is dealing with loss, please invite them to attend this special service.
