St. Paul United Church of Christ will have a Longest Night of the Year service at 7 p.m. Thursday, which is the winter solstice. The service is at the church, Eighth and Church streets.
The Longest Night of the Year service is an opportunity to acknowledge the less-than-merry feelings that can accompany the Christmas season.
The service is open to the community.
