Sunday Services at 10:30 A.M.

November 19th:
J. P. Cass, “Thanksgiving in Perspective”

We will look at the history of the holiday, and where we might take it going forward.

November 26th:
Cathy Thomas and Jean-Marie Walker “Gratitude Fellowship”

We at UUCR are going to try out something new (as we often do). Instead of listening to a service or talk, we will instead explore together, the question, “What is gratitude?”

December 3rd:
Rev. Barbara Threet “What Do Non-Christians Do in December?”

We’ll explore a few December stories and customs that come from some cultures that aren’t Christian at all, or those which arenominally Christian but where church plays a very minor role in regular life. Did you know about the Christmas Wombat? Or Old Belfana? How about Iceland’s Gryla? Here’s your chance…

December 10th:
"Intergenerational Sunday Service: Holiday Symbols and Decorations"

After a short talk on the history of the evergreen tree and other symbols of the season, join us in making decorations and decorating the sanctuary.

Friday December 15th, 5:30-8pm Intergenerational Solstice Gathering “Bringing in the Light”
During the darkest time of the year, we need to feel the warmth of the presence of others. On Sunday, we will have decked the church hall, so Friday, we hope everyone will come to enjoy good tidings of the solstice season.

The event will start with a potluck dinner (please bring a dish to share), and some time to mingle. Then we will turn the lights down, and begin with a single candle in the dark, and invite people to get up and share a song, a poem, a story, a joke etc, and then light their candle off the main one. As we celebrate what each of us brings to the group, the hall gradually fills with light.

December 24th, 5:00pm - Christmas Eve Service with Rev. Barbara Threet
An intimate and meaningful Christmas tradition at the Unitarian Universalist church, with carols and reflections on the holiday.
