‘Blue’ Christmas worship service set at La Jolla United Methodist Church

La Jolla United Methodist Church will be offering its second annual Blue Christmas Service at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21 in the sanctuary at 6063 La Jolla Blvd. Following the service, there will be a fellowship time with coffee, cookies and conversation in Memorial Hall.

Church staff said the service is open to all and designed for people who experience “the blues” during the holidays due to a recent loss or emptiness that leads to feeling alone, discouraged, disconnected or bereft. “The Blue Christmas service is an opportunity to gather for a quiet, reflective time of worship, remembering the one and only essential thing about Christmas … that God came to us bringing light for our darkness, peace for our turmoil, hope in the midst of our despair,” according to church officials.
