Winter Holiday Services

We hope you will come and observe the blessings and wonder of the season, in community, during these special gatherings. 

Blue Holiday Vespers Service on Wednesday, December 7 at 5:30 pm

The winter holidays are usually framed around peace and joy and hope, and if you’re not feeling those themes right now, you’re not alone.  You’re invited to this evening service, where we’ll share and ritualize the losses, fears, regrets, and sorrows we’re feeling this holiday season, in the space we make sacred together.  This service will be streamed via Zoom, and in-person participants will be asked to sign in at the door.

Winter Solstice Celebration on Saturday, December 17 at 5:00 pm

The JRUUC Sacred Breath Choir and Rev. Karen are delighted to offer this event in person for the first time since 2019!  The evening is a deep ritual and celebration of the light that shines within and between us, with songs, reflections, silence, and candlelight.  Please contact Rev. Karen if you’re interested in or curious about being a reader for this special evening.  The service will also be streamed via Zoom.

Carols and Coffee on Sunday, December 25 at 10:00 am

Instead of our regular Sunday worship, we’ll have a shortened service and sing a few traditional Christmas songs together.  Please bring a sweet treat to share for a festive coffee hour.
