Christmas Eve Services(Online & In-person)

4:00 PM Outdoor Service Register HERE
6:00 PM. Lessons & Carols Online Zoom Link HERE

We want to house the holy in this season. Based on recommendations from the Phase Forward Team managing our Covid practices, UCW will offer two opportunities for worship on Christmas Eve.
At 4:00 p.m. – a simple Christmas Eve with candlelight and carols OUTDOORS. If the weather is inclement, the back-up plan is to join the 6 p.m. worship on Zoom.
At 6:00 p.m. – an in-person capacity-limited hybrid Lessons and Carols in the Sanctuary.
Registration for in-person attendance is required for both services for planning and tracing purposes. Zoom will be offered at 6:00 p.m. and does not require registration. We hope these multiple options secure an option that feels right for you. Read More …

Come after worship at 11:00 a.m. as we create family Advent Wreaths together, and share time to connect! If you have a wire wreath from past years, please bring it! We’ll have extras, as well as new candles and greens! Read More …

Sunday, November 21

Amidst all the loss, uncertainty, and challenges we have experienced this year, we have so much for which to be grateful. Come; let us be together in a spirit of Thanksgiving. As we continue our exploration of Paul’s words from the letter to Romans, we’ll consider how we are called to “rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep;” and how practices of humility and gratitude may guide us to greater peace.

We are also so grateful for the gift of beautiful music from James Cooke and Lisa Crockett! Read More …

Worship (Online & In-person)
Sunday, November 14

Pastor Wendy preached,
We continued to dig into words from the letter to Romans and examined the power of holding fast to what is good through shared purpose. In this time of transition, the purpose question is the most important work we can do in order to discern the right leader to help fulfill that purpose. Coming to God-given consensus on a common purpose is invigorating work. We will see what inspiration we find in these ancient words to move us on that path. Read More …

Worship (Online & In-person)
Sunday, November 7

Pastor Wendy preached and  we shared in Communion.
For the next few Sundays we will dig into words from the letter to Romans. The apostle Paul wrote these words to a church he had not yet met, but who were facing the common circumstances of emergent and new communities gathering in the name of Jesus. Like those who heard these words long ago, we will ponder, what does it mean to “hold fast to what is good?” Read More …

Worship (Online & In-person)
Sunday, October 31

Pastor Wendy was our preacher and we celebrated
the saints in our midst and in that great cloud of witnesses.

The biblical story of Ruth and Naomi centered us in asking the question – how shall we go together? Ministry in a time of transition has always been a challenge. Layer the havoc wreaked by the pandemic and discerning a way forward in an upended world adds more challenge. What stories of people of faith can help us find our way? We’ll explore these themes in the next few Sundays as we come together, build relationship and set on a path towards new pastoral leadership. The sermon is inspired in part by this song – feel free to check it out in advance.  Read More …
