December Theme: Hope
Sunday, December 7: Making Room for Hope, Rev. Kristin Grassel Schmidt, preaching. In the lead-up to the winter holidays we wait to celebrate stories we know end happily. But in the midst of life’s pain and struggles, it can sometimes be hard to hold onto hope. This week in worship we will hear special music by the Band, sing of our longing for a better world, and reflect deeply on how to make room in ourselves for hope, even when hope seems so far away.
Sunday, December 14: The Miracle of Hanukkah, Co-led by Deanna Greenstein, Coordinator of Religious Education and Katelyn Haven. In this service for people of all ages, we seek wisdom about hope and resilience from the Jewish story of the miracle of Hanukkah.
Sunday, December 21: Mary’s Yes, Rev. Kristin Grassel Schmidt, preaching. The Sunday before Christmas, come for an inspirational service filled with story, prayer, carols, and a sermon about how saying “yes” can empower us to bring hope to birth in our lives and the world.
Sunday, December 21 at 5:00 p.m. : Winter Solstice Service, led by Katelyn Haven. Join us as our community gathers to celebrate the return of the sun, and the triumph of its warmth and light, on the darkest night of the year. Make sure to bring something for the communal altar and bundle up! We’ll end the celebration outside by making joyful noise to wake up the sun. This is a participatory service for people of all ages.
Wednesday, December 24 at 4:00 p.m.: Christmas Eve Family Service, Rev. Kristin Grassel Schmidt, preaching. The young and young at heart will delight in this shorter service of lessons, carols, and prayer. Greg Wolfe joins Richard Hill in this joyous and song-filled celebration of Christmas.
