Worship Services - Sundays at 10:30am
Dec. 1 - Wait for It! - Worship Committee
The season of advent is a time of waiting in anticipation…
Dec. 8 – “Hope is…” - Rev. Carol Strecker
Hope is one of several themes lifted up during the season of advent in the Christian tradition. It is a time for preparing our hearts for something new -- making room for more peace, more joy, and more love in our lives and in the world. But what is hope and why is it so important? How can it help us open our hearts this holiday season and always?
“Hope is a thing with feathers that perches in the soul.”

Winter Solstice Spiral - Sat, Dec. 21
- 5:30pm in Barnum Hall
Rev. Linda Goodman, Interfaith Minister
As the earth pauses its cycle and begins to turn again toward more light, let us also pause at this busy time and experience the wonder of the season with soft music, candlelight, and community. In this special ceremony for all ages, you will be invited to walk a large spiral path laid out in evergreen boughs. At the center, you will receive a gift of candle's light from an "angel". As you walk the spiral path out, you will place your light on a star along the path, adding the gift of your light to the light of many candles shining on sparkling crystals. Come share the wonder!
Dec. 22 - The Gifts of the Longest Night - Rev. Carol Strecker
This service of contemplative readings and meditation will be a time of stillness and reflection -- an opportunity to explore the age-old wisdom of embracing the dark.
“For bud and root still hold the spark, as they rest and wait in the dark.
They need this peace and so do we.” ~
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service
– Wed, Dec. 24 at 5:00pm - Rev. Carol Strecker
We’ll welcome Christmas with candles, music, and readings, celebrating the light born of hope in the birth of every child. We’ll tell the ancient story of Jesus’ humble birth and light candles for the birth of every child born since last Christmas Eve. This is a service for all ages.
“Every night a child is born is a holy night.”
~Sophia Lyon Fahs, Unitarian Religious Educator
