Center will be hosting a Quiet Christmas Service on Wednesday, December 7th at 6pm. This service is very somber, and it is for those who need a different type of Christmas service. It’s for those who are grieving from a recent loss or even for those that feel Christmas is not as bright and jolly anymore since their loved one has passed on. The reason for the season is remembering the birth of Jesus Christ, but there are people out there who have a difficult time with the holidays. For more information, please call Kelly Cruse at 704-575-8187 or email kellycruse8187@gmail.com
