Longest Night Service

Submitted By Niles Discovery Church

For many, Christmas time is a bittersweet time of year. For people who are dealing with grief, significant life changes, sobriety, and other challenges, this time of year can be especially difficult.

"This is also the time of year with the longest nights,Ó Rev. Jeffrey Spencer notes. "So on the longest night of the year, our congregation will offer to anyone in the community a special meditative worship service that makes time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ."

This "Longest Night Service" will be held at Niles Discovery Church. The service includes special music, scripture, stories, silent reflection, anointing, and healing prayer. The service will be followed by a simple time of fellowship for those who wish to participate.

"Attendees will be invited [to] light candles during the service as a quiet response and act of prayer," Spencer explains. "This is our pre-Christmas gift to the community," he said.
