The Velvet Sky

As we begin exploring the theme of mystery, we're called to bring our attention to that which usually remains hidden, the vastness of the unknown, and our connection to something larger than ourselves.

Stepping into Trust

 As we contemplate our relationship to all that is greater than any one of us, we are invited, over and over again, to step into trust.  How do we step into trust? What does trust require of us?

We Dream in the Darkness

    4:30pm Family Service

Join us for a holiday worship service that is truly for all ages. We will re-create the ancient story of Jesus's birth with a "no-rehearsal" pageant! Participants will be chosen during the service and can be any age (no reading or acting abilities are necessary).

PLEASE NOTE: there are no classes for children and the nursery and preschool will be closed. But we will have plenty of family-friendly seating in the service.

 

    7:00pm and 9:00pm Evening Candlelight Services

Carols and stories, old and new. Candles for hope. Warm gifts of companionship, of presence. On this holy night of anticipating hope, being together is a more vital practice than ever.

 

 


December 30, 9:30am and 11:30am

Begin with Stillness

We look to a new year of spiritual quest and community building, heeding the wisdom of contemporary UU theologian Kathleen McTigue. We "pause for a moment on the forming edges of our lives, to resist the headlong tumble into the next moment." In this multigenerational service, we will participate in rituals to release the previous year and clear the way for the year ahead.
