LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The holidays aren't always the most wonderful time of the year. A Lafayette church holding a service for those who may be having a difficult time.
The Longest Night Service is being held at Grace United Methodist Church on Thursday.
This is an 18-year-old tradition and service will start at 7 o'clock.
The holidays are a time to spend with your loved ones and be happy.
But those at the church understand that not everyone is fortunate enough to do so.
This service is for those who are struggling this holiday season.
People who are mourning the loss of a loved one, a job, health concerns or just "not feeling it" this year.
After Thursday evening's service, there will be refreshments.
The name of the service reflects the winter solstice: Thursday is the shortest day and the longest night of the year.
