Blue Christmas Service

Event Dates and Times

12/5/2017 - Starts: 3:00 PM
Murphytown UMC, 1392 Murphtown Rd. Parkersburg, WV, 26101
Blue Christmas services offer special recognition of the struggles that many people face during this season. For many, the holidays – a time when we feel we are supposed to celebrate hope, love, joy and peace - are not merry but full of depression, sadness and grief.

This service acknowledges the struggles that we all face while providing a safe place of rest, comfort and healing.
