December 20, 2023 – The Dark of the Moon Special Evening Multiplatform Service at 8pm.
As the Winter Solstice approaches, we take time amidst the rush, expectation, and forceful joy of this month to notice the dark. Come to celebrate the earth’s turning. Come to honor the complexity of this time. Come to make space for your grief. Come to give thanks. All are welcome.  If you are joining online, we invite you to create a special space for yourself by getting a candle, a smooth stone, and a pen/journal to write reflections.

December 24, 2023  – Nativity Pageant at 10am, multiplatform
Learning is done through play! Come join us for our annual participatory nativity pageant.  Only a few roles are cast in advance of the service, the rest of the at least 27 participants (including shepherds, stars, kings, and animals) take part as the story is told. Everyone is invited to sing carols as we experience this familiar story in a new, meaningful, and moving way.

December 24, 2023  – Christmas Eve Candlelight Multiplatform Service at 8pm
The Breath Between Past and Future

Though the Christmas story does not change, we do. Join UUCWC for our annual candlelit service, where the ancient story will be told once again, for today’s world and wisdom. Our talented choir and special musicians will offer traditional and modern music to accompany these needed words. 

December 31, 2023 – Annual Generations Service at 10am, multiplatform
Various generations representing different decades in age (20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s) reflect on a work of art (poem, novel, short story, movie, piece of music, song, painting, or sculpture) that moves or influences them, provides them with insight and/or comfort, or brings them joy. Thanks to Scott Cullen for once again giving us this moving and inspiring service!
