  • The Gift of Presence (7 pm Christmas Eve service)

    We have two services on Christmas Eve. Both will celebrate the gifts of the season through story and song, and end with the lighting of candles and the singing of Silent Night. The 7 pm service is meant to be quiet and contemplative but all are welcome.

  • The Gift of Presence (5:30 pm Christmas Eve Service)

    We have two services on Christmas Eve. Both will celebrate the gifts of the season through story and song, and end with the lighting of candles and the singing of Silent Night. The 5:30 pm service is intended to be lively and family-friendly but all are welcome.

  • Spirit of the Christmas Tree

    “Spirit of the Christmas Tree,” is an intergenerational worship service and pageant that celebrates the Christmas nativity story from a Unitarian Universalist perspective. As the Christmas story is re-enacted we can try to reclaim Jesus's message in a way that is relevant to our lives and to our religious liberalism.

  • Reclaiming Wonder

    Direct experience of mystery and wonder is one of the sources of a Unitarian Universalist faith. The long, dark nights of winter invite us to imagine and wonder, to engage a sense of curiosity and ponder mystery. How might we reclaim the religious experience of wonder this holiday season?

  • Humility and Awe

    The winter holiday season is a time of awe, a time to ponder the wondrous mystery of creation and consider our place within it. Together we’ll look at how humility and awe go hand-in-hand and may very well be what can save us in our current time.
