7:00 pm: Blue December Service


December 7, 2022

In-person and Livestreaming on Zoom
The cultural noise and speed of the December holiday season can be a strain for many of us. For some the expectations of peace, love, and joy surrounded by family and friends is not been their experience. For others December may be the anniversary of a memorable loss in your life: the death of a loved one; the end of a precious relationship or something else. Fewer hours of daylight make some of us blue at this time of year. If, for any reason, this time of year finds you longing for a calm, reflective approach to the season you are invited to the Blue December service. Music, silence, companionship and thoughtful words will surround and comfort us all.

December 11, 2022

The Rev. Bob LaVallee
“Wokeness” seems to be easily dismissed by the some, but in an era of growing Christo-fascism, our progressive values are more important than ever. This topic was chosen by the winners of the Social Justice Auction.

The Worship Coordinators
This year, instead of examining our individual selves on New Year’s Day, let’s consider the context of community. What can we learn from the web of life that connects the forest floor? Stay in your PJs and join us for a Zoom-only service from home, or join other congregants in the Social Hall for coffee and company to watch the service together. Have writing and coloring tools available for our annual worship stations! Download the coloring page for the Creation Station here, or pick up a page in the social hall.
