The Children and Youth Christmas Program will feature in the worship service for United Methodist congregations at Prairie Home and Jamestown at 9:45 a.m. Sunday at Grace UMC in Jamestown.

Although Christmas is often seen as a time of joy and peace, for many who have experienced loss and grief, it is anything but joy and peace. To help folks lift their spirits, the Blue Christmas Service will be held at 2 p.m. in the sanctuary of Prairie Home UMC.

The communities are invited to both of these services. Grace UMC is on Row Street (SR 179) two blocks east of the four-way stop in Jamestown. Prairie Home UMC is just southwest of the water tower on Highway 87 in Prairie Home.
