Dec. 21 LIGHT IN THE DARK­NESS SER­VICE: All are wel­come to come to this Light in the Dark­ness: A ser­vice of com­fort and hope on the long­est night of the year. Satur­day, De­cem­ber 21, 2019, 7 pm at the First Pres­by­te­rian Church 22 West High Street Ballston Spa, NY 12020. Christ­mas can be a painful time. The con­stant, in­escapable re­frain about the hap­pi­ness of the sea­son re­minds many peo­ple of what they have lost or have never had. Bro­ken or lost re­la­tion­ships, em­ploy­ment and fi­nan­cial in­se­cu­rity, poor health, de­pres­sion—all of these can be more dif­fi­cult as the nights lengthen and the cold in­trudes. Rec­og­niz­ing that Christ came to com­fort those who strug­gle with sad­ness and pain, First Pres­by­te­rian Church will host a com­mu­nity ser­vice of scrip­ture, prayer, mu­sic and can­dle light­ing to in­vite God’s Word to shine light into our dark­ness. Ev­ery­one, re­gard­less of church back­ground (or no re­li­gious af­fil­i­a­tion) is wel­come.
