Are you longing for peace?

If so, you are in good company. This time of year brings a lot of stress upon us.

Many are grieving a loss and anticipating a much different holiday season than ever before. Many are trying to make ends meet and to make the holidays possible. Many are stressing about getting everything done in the timelines given to us. Many are searching for the perfect gift with no luck in sight. Many are feeling the weight of loneliness and sadness. Many are longing for newness as the year comes to an end.

Wherever you may be, chances are you need a little sense of God’s peace. In the season of Advent, we celebrate the coming Christ who will bring peace to all the earth. Amidst the heartache and stress, we trust that God’s peace abounds with us. Christ’s light offers a sense of peace that only God can give.

This Sunday, we will be hosting a Blue Christmas healing service where we believe a sense of God’s peace will be found. Whatever you are holding this holiday season, we invite you to come and receive God’s peace in this service of music and poetry. Let us come together and cherish this time in the midst of community. Might we each find God’s peace this week.

I pray you will join us Sunday at 11am for this beautiful service of healing.

Peace and blessings,

Pastor Kipp
