Blue Christmas Service

Not everyone enjoys the holiday season.

Many of us grieve the loss of loved ones, find ourselves alone, or just don’t feel as joyful as others seem to be.

If you identify with these feelings of loss and sadness during the holidays, please join us for our annual Blue Christmas Service.

Nursery care is available staffed with professional care givers. The nursery is located in room 131 & 132.

For any questions, please contact the church office: 480-892-9166 or secretary@gilbertumc.org
