Our Savior’s to hold Longest Night service

Our Savior’s Lutheran Church will hold a Longest Night service at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 21. Also known as a Blue Christmas, the Longest Night service addresses the sadder side of the Christmas holidays.

For individuals and families who have experienced or are experiencing the loss of a loved one, a divorce, health or financial issues or other challenges, the holidays are not always a time of merriment. The Longest Night service recognizes that and offers a time of quiet prayer and meditation.

The public is invited to attend.

Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is located at 15751 Quarry Road in Lake Oswego. For more information, call the church office at 503-635-4563 or visit oursaviors.net.
