Newman UCC Presents: The Longest Night A Winter Solstice Worship Service


For those who have experienced loss, the holidays can be a particularly painful time, stirring up grief in acute ways. As a result, churches around the world have adopted the practice of having a “Blue Christmas” or a “Longest Night” service during the Advent season. In the Northern hemisphere, this service is often observed on December 21st, the Winter Solstice, which is the longest night of the year.

Newman UCC invites the community to join us for:

The Longest Night: A Winter Solstice Worship Service
Tuesday, December 21st at 7:00 pm
in-person or online via our live stream.

The live stream for worship may be accessed at www.YouTube.com/newmanucc or www.newmanucc.org/worship

This service is designed to provide space for prayer, reflection, and remembrance amidst the holiday hustle and bustle. In this pandemic season of life, we imagine that grief and loss will be magnified and nearly universal, and a service like this may be needed now more than ever.

Newman UCC is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ and extends this invitation to one and all, living out the example of Jesus’ extravagant welcome.

Newman Congregational Church, United Church of Christ is located at 100 Newman Avenue, Rumford, RI 02916
