Christmas: The Unitarian Holiday

Sunday, December 5, 2021 at 10 AM.

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Heidi Shaffer Bish.

Many Christmas traditions we enjoy in the United States would not exist without Unitarians. We’ll learn about how this holiday was celebrated (or not) in the early history of this country, how it became popular again in the mid 1800s after Unitarian Charles Dickens wrote “A Christmas Carol” and meet some of the Unitarians who composed the songs and started some of the many holiday traditions we still enjoy today.

Light One Candle

Sunday, November 28, 2021 at 10 AM.

A multi-platform service led by the Rev. Steven Protzman.

The hymn “Light One Candle” tells us “Don’t let the light go out.” This hymn is about the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah, which begins this evening and recalls the story of a military victory and the miracle of a sacred lamp that burned for eight days even though there was only enough oil for one day. As we tell this story, we will promise to keep the light burning brightly, the light of hope, justice, and peace.

A Picture of Gratitude

Sunday, November 21, 2021 at 10 AM.

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Director of Religious Education Colleen Thoele.

What would gratitude look like if you could capture it in a picture? What if it was a puzzle of many pieces, each of them something we’re grateful for? We’ve created a gratitude picture, made up of the many pieces of gratitude you’ve each shared. As we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, we will tell stories, sing songs, and reflect with thanks and joy on the many blessings life gives us.

A Road Divided

Sunday, November 14, 2021 at 10 AM

Led by Rev. Dave Clements and Worship Associate Eric van Baars

Robert frost in his famous poem speaks of a traveler who comes to a place on his path where he encounters two roads. He makes a decision as to which one to take. This poem has always had meaning to me.  During this service we will explore those times in our lives when we are faced with choices and how when we look back the big difference that choice made. I invite you to join me as we explore together “A Road Divided.”

Remember

Sunday, November 7, 2021 at 10 AM.

Led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns.

As a congregation and as individuals, we are beginning a new chapter. We have a brand new social hall to live into, we are coming back together in person gradually for worship and community life, and we are each figuring out what life looks like as the pandemic wanes. As we shape a vision for the future, what do we want to hold onto from our past? What have we forgotten about ourselves or our congregation that needs to be remembered?
