Rev. Maggie Yenoki, Intern Minister
Walking through our days with a thankful heart is one way that we bring ourselves closer to our best selves and devote our lives to the spiritual practice of embracing and embodying gratitude. When we gather together for our Service on Thanksgiving Sunday we will blend the thankfulness we each carry and create a portion of gratefulness that is big enough to fill us to the top with leftovers to share with the world...
Lily Popova, Abraham Peraza and Rev. Susan Manker
Join us as we open the holiday season with songs, music, and reflections on the December worship theme of light. Lily Popova will direct the choir and delight us with special music. Rev. Manker will share a few words with us, and Abraham Peraza will be worship associate.
Amy Randall and Rev. Susan Manker
Each birth is a blessing. At this time of year we celebrate the birth of a baby named Jesus and what that means to Unitarian Universalists. This multigenerational service explores the Nativity story and its universal message.

Winter comes with fires to chase away the cold, colored lights to brighten the long nights, and traditions handed down through generations to connect us, whether we want them to or not, to our past and an ancient hope. How much of the healing power of the holidays do we allow to touch us, or are there only days of stress and regret? We’ll look again at how the myths of these days can reshape our lives and bring us joy, if we let them. The choir will sing.
Rev. Susan Manker and Rev. Maggie Yenoki
Before you rush off to finish shopping or wrapping gifts this last day before Christmas, take a moment to pause and remember what is holy about this time. Let go what is unfinished. Be at peace with what is. We shall uplift the joy of the holidays this Christmas Eve morning.
Rev. Susan Manker, Lily Popova, Abraham Peraza
Let’s celebrate this special night with carols sung in candlelight, children snuggled close and jingle bells. Rev. Susan will tell a story she wrote, and there will be special music to lift your spirits, even if they don’t need it. We’ll follow this hour-long, multi-generational service with refreshments, so BRING GOODIES if you can manage it (but don’t bother if you’re stressed - just gather everyone up and join us!) Merry Christmas!
