During this service those who want to may list on a blue sheet of paper the item(s) that they are dealing with this holiday season, which will be placed into a basket on the altar to be prayed over for the entire Advent season. Also, a candle may be offered up in the memory of someone or for that situation that some may be dealing with. This is a small way of honoring the fact that even during this time of the year many people are struggling.
If you are in the greater Alpena, MI area and have experienced a loss of any type please come to this service. It will be held on Sunday, December 11, at 4:00 P.M. at St. Paul, 727 S. Second Ave. Alpena, MI. Our prayer is that no matter what you may be going through, that during this holiday season you may experience God’s peace and love! Vernon T.
