Christmas Eve Services

ONE Morning SERVICE at 9:15 am

Quiet Corners of the Ordinary

Rev. Deborah Cayer, Worship Leader. Kate Lewis, piano.

We are not saints or heroes, Kent Nerburn says, in fact we live amid what is small, close, and usual. Yet when we light our small candle, we might unknowingly help others. “It is not an issue of quality or intensity or purity. It is simply an issue of the presence of light.”

TWO Evening Services & Soup Supper

5 pm Service
An evening service featuring members and friends of all ages in a Pageant that tells the Christmas story. Candle lighting as we sing Silent Night. 

6 pm Soup Supper
A Very Simple Soup Supper. Members bring pots of soup, loaves of bread, and cookies and cakes to share on Christmas Eve.

7:30 pm Service
An evening service of carols, Christian texts, and contemporary readings that tell the Christmas story, with music by a Christmas Choir, and candle lighting as we sing Silent Night.

ONE Morning SERVICE at 10:15 am
with karamu immediately after in Fellowship Hall

Kwanzaa

Rev. Jacqueline Brett and African Americans of ERUUF's gathered community lead our third annual Kwanzaa service for all people and all generations. Members of the Beloved Community Chorus bring the music.

Dr. Mulana Karenga created Kwanzaa 50 years ago as a way to lift up and celebrate African American cultural heritage and key values of family, self-determination, the power of working together, faith, creativity, and community.

Immediately after our Kwanzaa service we move to the Fellowship Hall for a karamu-a celebration complete with food and dancing!
