Christmas Eve Services (10 a.m. & 5 p.m.)

Christmas Eve services:

  • 10 a.m.: The Unitarians and Christmas. During the 19th century, Unitarians transformed Christmas from a minor holiday to a major cultural and religious event. Much of the music and many of our contemporary Christmas icons (including Santa Claus, Scrooge, Jingle Bells and more) came about because of the work of Unitarians who emphasized charity and a spirit of giving. What influence would we like to have on Christmas in the 21st century?
  • 5 p.m.: Candlelight Service. This candlelight service will be an intergenerational, family-­friendly event featuring music from our children, youth and others, as well as stories and a brief re­enactment of the Nativity.

Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New

This reflective, end-of-year service will give us a chance to reflect on what has happened in our lives and in the world in 2017, to let go of those things we need to let go of, and to express our hopes, dreams and wishes for 2018.
