During most of the year, our Sunday morning worship service schedule includes a 10 a.m. service for families (children and adults) and a 10:30 a.m. service for adults (while children attend religious education classes). The service and the religious education classes both end at 11:30 a.m. and are followed by a time of refreshment and fellowship.
Services not following that schedule are indicated.
December 1 Just As We Are
Our worship today will center on illness and wholeness. In honor of World AIDS Day, December 1, we will reflect on the history and present day realities of AIDS. How do shame and stigma get in the way of healing?
December 8 Things of Worth
The word “worship” comes from an Old English word that means acknowledgment of worth. How can we adequately pay homage to the worthy wonders that awaken awe within each of us and all around us? How do we show reverence for all that we love and hold most holy?
December 15 Revels
10:15 Service (No RE classes)
In this season of late sunrises and early sunsets, we celebrate the coming return of the light. Children and youth lead us in an appreciation of the many ways this season is observed: Yule, Solstice, Hanukkah, Christmas, and Santa Lucia Day. Our shadow story this year: the birth of Jesus. All are welcome for this special multigenerational celebration!
December 20 Solstice
7:00pm service (Childcare is not available.)
In one of the most moving services of our entire year, our choir will lead us in a celebration of the winter solstice. Through music, readings and the play of dark and light, we will enter into the heart of this ancient earth- based spiritual passage. Open to all.
December 22 Ordinary but Awesome
Tonight is the first night of Chanukah, the Jewish holiday of light and miracles. According to Albert Einstein, “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” In worship today we will reflect on the ordinary, everyday miracles that fill our lives with light.
December 24 Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
5:00 pm and 7:00 pm Services
Join us as we sing Christmas carols, share passages from the Christian Bible that tell the story of Jesus’ birth, and reflect on the spirit of Christmas from a Unitarian Universalist perspective.
