As the holiday season unfolds with joy for many, others grapple with feelings of sadness, loneliness, or anxiety. Sensing the struggles that some face during this time, more than 80 United Methodist churches in North and Central Texas are extending a warm embrace through Blue Christmas services.
In your area, key services include:
- FUMC Grand Prairie: December 19 at 5 p.m.
