The purpose of this service is to allow time for prayer and reflection. Christmas can be a painful time for some. It may be the first Christmas without a loved family member who has recently passed on; it may be a time that has always been difficult. We need the space and time to acknowledge our sadness; we need to know that we are not alone. We will open LWLC to the community. The service is non-denominational and will last approximately 45 min with fellowship following.
