Service: Gathered Here For Winter Solstice 9:30 & 11:00

Stephanie Zoernack has been organizing and celebrating the solstice and equinox at UUCOV for the past 3 years ; she and her worship associates are now bringing them to the larger congregation to be experienced. In this service, they will “call on the directions’, cast a circle, extinguish the flame of the old year and light the flame of the new year, and introduce us to readings and songs from the pagan tradition.

Service: Giving In To Christmas 10:00

Rev. Khleber Van Zandt. In the midst of such a hectic season, it can be difficult to remember any reason to celebrate. Let’s gather on a quiet Sunday morning, adjust our exorbitant expectations, and allow the joy of Christmas into our hearts.

December 24
Service: The Shepard and the Wise Man: 6:00 pm

Rev. Khleber Van Zandt. Christmas Eve. Shepherds watching their flocks by night, wise men traveling great distances on the strength of a strange prophecy: the ancient myths challenge reason and are difficult to fathom by daylight. This traditional candlelight worship service celebrates mystery and the birth of new hope into the world. Donations this evening will go to the Minister’s Discretionary Fund to help those in need in our broader community.

December 31
Service: The Ceaseless Flow of Endless Time 10:00 am

Rev. Margaret L. Beard. The wheel of life is turning and a new year is upon us. What will we make of it? The state of our country and the world around us could be an expanded opportunity for ministry. Rev. Beard retired in 2016 after 22 years serving Unitarian Universalism, first at UUA, developing print, web and, training resources for new and growing congregations, and later as a parish minister in congregations in Georgia, North Carolina and Florida.
