December 3 – Seasons of Life

In our annual SAGES service, Rev. Rost will explore the meaning of our years and how we can embrace with grace and gratitude all the years of our lives. There will also be a SAGE-ing ceremony to recognize those who have turned 65 in 2017 and those older and the gifts they bring us.

Children and Youth start in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


December 10- #standup4humanrights

This Sunday we will kick off the 70th year of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights by also observing the 5th anniversary of the Sandy Hook mass murder that took the lives of 20 first graders and six adults were gunned down in Newton, Conn. We join with over 200 faith and gun violence prevention organizations in towns and cities in 40 states, DC, and the Netherlands during the 5rd anniversary of the Sandy Hook shooting to honor all victims of gun violence weekend. This is a timely topic as the “prize” for deadliest shooting just keeps getting surpassed. Join us as Rev. Rost explores what does our faith call us to do to end gun violence in our communities? How can we ensure we’ve done all we can to keep our families safe while honoring the second amendment of our Constitution? How can we #standup4humanrights so that we need not lose more people to the slaughter of unchecked availability of weapons of war and limitless ammo?

            NOTE: There will be a follow-up community event, co-sponsored with Moms Demand Action to End Gun Violence and others at All Souls this evening at 5 PM. Join us for this candlelight vigil as Michael Martin of RAWtools beats a gun into a garden implement.

Children and Youth start in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


December 17 – Children’s Holiday Service

Join us for service on December 17th for our first annual presentation of The No Rehearsal Christmas Pageant! This fun, meaningful, and rehearsal-free intergenerational live reenactment of the Christmas Story will revisit why every child brings us hope! All ages are invited to participate at their own comfort level; whether wearing a costume, singing carols, or bearing witness from the pews.

Children and Youth stay in the Great Hall for an intergenerational service. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


December 24 10:30 am – What Child Is This

In this special service, Rev. Rost will explore the ways in which every child is a holy child, using the Christian narrative of the early years of Jesus to explore the lessons our children teach us, even before birth. Rev. Rost will also be conducting a ritual of blessing and gratitude for the children from pregnancy through 18. There will also be lots of great special music from the choir and band and soloists!

Children and Youth stay in the Great Hall for an intergenerational service. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.


 December 24 7:00 pm – Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Join us at 7 PM as we celebrate a traditional (well as traditional as we UUs get) Christmas Eve service. We’ll sing your favorite carols (version 2.0 UU upgrade) and readings about the mystery of the Christmas story.
Child care not available.

December 31 – Stone Soup Sunday
What happens when everyone shares what they have? Community is created! Needs are met! And hearts and bodies are nourished. Join us in the (quasi) annual service and bring all the left overs from your holiday season to share! There will be a stone soup potluck following this service.
Children and Youth start in the Great Hall. Nursery and Pre-K care will be available.
