We will be hosting an interdenominational  BLUE CHRISTMAS service here to help our family and friends whose modd is not in synch with the holiday season.  For many of us, loss of loved ones, depression, and our personal life journeys create a feeling of sadness that is exacerbated by the holidays.  There is a planning meeting among the neighborhood clergy and mental health organizations on Thursday, November 17.  If you are interested in helping or want to receive updates on this service, please email the church office at irvingparkumc@comcast.net.
