Longest Night - Blue Christmas Worship Service
Held in our Good Shepherd Ministry Center Sanctuary on Friday, Dec 21 at 7pm.
772 S Johnson Ave, El Cajon, CA 92020

December  21 is the longest night of the year, but the name also describes the feeling that many have during this time: memories of past experiences and the pain of present situations can become overwhelming making Christmas difficult and the New Year feel like the beginning of another lonely year. In this service, we invite you to listen, to pray, to meditate upon the pain and anguish you may bring​.
We trust you will find hope and comfort in knowing that you are not alone.
