The Longest Night Service
Tree City Church Boise Campus: 3852 N Eagle Road Boise, ID 83713
December 21, 2021 at 7:00 PM MST
The service is titled, “The Longest Night” because so often the glow of
Christmas lights, holiday cheer, and Advent candles can feel unreachable to
those surrounded by loss or grief. The longest night of the year, winter solstice,
takes place on December 21st. This service is a safe space for those who are
struggling to feel the joy and light of this holiday season due to loss of any kind.
This service is not intended to be a service of healing, but an acknowledgment
of the hole grief leaves in one’s heart while simultaneously remembering
that we worship a God who is with us, even in the darkest of times
Kids Ministry for ages Birth - Kindergarten available during this special service.

Blue Christmas Service
Monday, December 21, 2020 at 6:30 PM MST
504 E Dewey Ave, Nampa, ID 83686
Recognizing that this season may be difficult for many, the staff at Nampa College Church has created a Blue Christmas Service, Monday, December 21. 2020 at 6:30pm. This service of lament, liturgy and remembrance invites us to reflect on the pain, the loneliness and sadness we may feel during Christmas time and offer it to God for healing and transformation. This service is not just for those who have lost loved one in this year.
This service is also for those who have faced difficulties with health, a job loss, financial setbacks, and situations that may have caused pain, confusion and fear. You are invited to come as you are, come with
your burdens and your concerns, and come knowing that God hears the cries of our laments.
This service will follow the COVID recommendations in place at Nampa College Church of the Nazarene.
