Kindling Hope

The Story of Hope

Celebrants: Kate Allen & Lyra Halsten

This Christmas Eve service invites children, their families, and the young at heart into a celebration of the story of Christmas and its deeper message of hope. Children are encouraged to arrive a few minutes early to choose a costume to be an angel, sheep, or shepard in our no-rehearsal Christmas pageant. The offering collected during this service will support the Unitarian Universalist commitment to Black Lives as a contribution to Black Lives UU.
