Worship Services

December 3 -What Star Are You Following?

Experts have long debated exactly what star the Three Wise Men were following to get to Bethlehem. A brief look at some of that discussion can suggest important possibilities for what it is that we look to for guidance in navigating not only this holiday season, but indeed our whole lives.


December 10 - The Gifts We Bring

A good deal of Christmas stress comes from coming up with the "perfect gift" and plenty of Christmas humor comes at the expense of what we deem ridiculous gifts. But in my focus this year on the Wise Men of the Nativity Story, I note that those scholars brought gold, frankincense, and myrhh to Baby Jesus. Just what a baby needs! This sermon will explore what gifts are for and how -  by broadening our understanding of their purpose - we might enrich the gift exchange experience more.


December 17 - Christmas Pageant

The children will present their version of the traditional story of the birth of Jesus.


December 24 - No morning worship service


December 24 - Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, 5:00 pm

Join us for a special service of Christmas Readings and Carols.  All are welcome!


December 31 - Circle Worship in Cushing Hall

All ages are welcome to this intergenerational service in which we will share in an informal reading of The Other Wise Man by Henry van Dyke.

Meet Our Minister,
