Blue Christmas Service - December 21st 

Blue Christmas

The Turning Pointe will be hosting a Blue Christmas worship on Wednesday, December 21st at 7:00 pm at the Worship Center. Christmas cheer is in short supply when the death of a loved one, a divorce, a job loss, a disease, or other difficult circumstance causes darkness. We will gather to acknowledge, to accept, to reflect, and to hold out for healing and hope. The Turning Pointe is located at 9800 Middle Mt. Vernon Road in Evansville.
