Longest Night Service planned


SIDNEY — The Longest Night Service will be held Sunday, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ, 707 N. Ohio Ave.

“In the past year some of us have lost loved ones to death, divorce, relocation or broken relationships,” organizers of the service said. “The chaos of our world can sometimes be overwhelming and even frightening at times. Jobs lost and illness can cause us to wonder about our future.

“Join us in this Longest Night Service as we gather to remember, pray, listen to Scripture and light a candle for healing and peace. We welcome anyone to join us in the service and hope to provide comfort and support as we all go through the trials of everyday life.

“If you know someone who has experienced a tough year or are in a rough place in their life, please bring them along.”
