Services for December 2018

heme: Inspiring

Unless otherwise noted, services include sermons preached by Rev. Andrew Clive Millard and take place at 9:30am and 11:15am on Sundays.

December 2nd: “Sharing Hope”
December 9th: “Keeping Faith”
December 16th: “Finding Joy”
December 23rd: “Knowing Love”

For decades, “Guest at Your Table” has been introducing Unitarian Universalists to real people impacted by human rights issues and to grassroots leaders making a difference around the world. This year, the UU Service Committee’s theme is “Justice Across Borders”, with four stories that provide a personal glimpse into the lives of Central Americans making the perilous journey north in hope of finding refuge in the United States. Each Sunday in Advent, we’ll meet one of the “guests” whose lives have been changed because of the generosity of UUs like us, and, in turn, their stories will be an inspiration to us.

On December 2nd and 9th, special music will be provided by “Doc” Robin van Tine; on December 16th, special music for flute and guitar will be provided by Marcy Stutzman and Jeffrey Hinkley; and on December 23rd, special music for flute and harp will be provided by Darla Wilmot and Mel Lauf!

Christmas Eve Services!
5pm on Monday December 24th: “The Other Wise Man”
7pm on Monday December 24th: “Bah! Humbug!”

We hold two services on Christmas Eve! The earlier is a family service about the sharing of gifts and a journey to find the newborn king; the later explores the truth and meaning of a favorite tale of the season. Each service features traditional Christmas carols and concludes with the beloved ceremony of passing the flame.

At both services, special music for Christmas will be provided by the UUFP’s ChorUUs and Winds!

December 30th: “Looking Back, Looking Forward”

Let’s take a look back into the past and forward into the future in preparation for the New Year!
