It's mid-December so it's time once again for the UUCCV Children's Service! In the past this has meant laughter and music and general rejoicing in the season -- and in our youngest and most precious members. Be sure to be with us for the 11:00am service this Sunday so you can be in on the silliness and sweetness.
How will this year's service be different? Come and find out!
Be with us starting at 6:30 for an evening of music and reflection. Talented musicians perform music for your enjoyment, we'll all sing together, and Rev. Melissa Mummert will have an inspiring and joyful message for us as well. Oh, and the soft glow of our candles all around. Make sure this event is on your calendar now!
The Winter Solstice has been a time of celebration observed with rituals of rebirth for thousands of years. Many of the traditions we now think of as being part of Christmas -- Yule logs, mistletoe, Christmas trees -- have their roots in these ancient celebrations. Michael Amy Cira has a deep "insider" understanding of the Solstice, and we're bringing her to our Sunday morning service especially so she can share those insights with you. Do not miss this!
Yes, Christmas Day falls on a Sunday this year! So join us here 11:00am-noon on that special day for an extremely informal gathering. Holiday snacks, music, and a few surprises!
Since Christmas Day fell on Sunday, naturally New Year’s Day falls on Sunday too! We’ll gather to discuss what 2017 will bring -- and what we can bring to 2017.
