Has this been a very difficult year for you or someone close to you? Maybe there was a death of someone dear to you, the loss of a job, a son or daughter who has gone to college or moved away. Maybe you can’t quite put your finger on it, but you are already dreading the shopping and partying and bright lights of Christmas this year. SouthPark Church is partnering with Wesley UMC to offer a service called Hope in the Holidays that will help you prepare for the season that is coming. It will be a simple service acknowledging the difficult expectations that come in the month of December. There will be music and a message, candle lighting and a healing service. Afterwards there will be light refreshments and Stephen Ministers from our congregation will be present if you would like to have a conversation with someone. The service will be held at Wesley UMC, located at 3715 Rea Road, Charlotte, NC. If you have questions about the Hope in the Holidays service, please contact Pastor Nancy at 704.413.0886 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
