In this joyous, multi-generational service, we’ll consider who belongs, and how we can make room. Children and youth will be invited to participate in our no-rehearsal pageant.
Rev. Katie Kandarian-Morris and Lisa McCorry
All ages are welcome to participate in our no-rehearsal pageant that tells the story of the birth of a very special baby. Stay afterwards to decorate our tree and sing carols together.
Our traditional ingathering service uses a communion of water from our travels to remind us of the healing power of community. We’ll remember the anniversary of 9/11/2001 and our friends in Baton Rouge who have had too much water. Our children will remain in the service today.
We affirm our ministry with children and youth by acknowledging the complex and wonderful ways teaching is an exercise in faith development for the teachers. Teaching and learning is reciprocal—what a gift!
MULTIGENERATIONAL Please bring a flower to offer today and be ready to receive another as we join in the annual “flower communion.” We’ll honor mothers, the beauty of diversity, and bring our prayers for peace.
Where in the world do we find resurrection? How might we dedicate ourselves to this new world? The choir will sing today and we’ll dedicate ourselves as an example of our hope in things to come.
As we culminate 30 Days of Racial Justice, our multigenerational congregation and choir will celebrate courageous love and look for more ways to bring courage to the world.
Two services on this Christmas Eve. Come at either 5 or 7pm for stories, lessons, carol singing and a message of hope for this dark and quiet evening where something special is happening. Families of all ages and compositions are welcome at either service. Childcare will be provided.
