For someone who has experienced a loss, the thought of facing all the celebration and busyness of the Christmas season can be hard.

Shreve United Methodist Church, 430 N. Main St., Shreve, will host a Blue Christmas Service on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. The Blue Christmas Service is meant for people experiencing loss and facing difficult circumstances during the holidays. It is a quiet, more meditative service for those carrying pain or loss at this time of year and allows those in attendance the opportunity to reflect and grieve in a quiet atmosphere.

The service offers a message of God’s love, a time for reflection and invitation to light a candle in memory of a loved one or in recognition of other losses.

Shreve United Methodist Church also will host a 13-week GriefShare program beginning Jan. 5 and continuing each Thursday through March 30 from 7-8:30 p.m.
