to see a video invitation to this weekend's worship.
Join us for this sacred evening of story, carols, and hope renewed.
5:30 PM Family Service—An interactive child-friendly service suited to families and children who might need to wiggle a bit. The service will include the telling of the Nativity Story and our annual pageant. The UUCR Choir will sing. As an opportunity to help our children reach out beyond themselves on Christmas Eve, we are requesting that each child please bring new or lightly used hats, mittens, gloves, warm socks, and pullovers to the 5:30 PM service for our special collection of clothing for local children in need.
7:15 PM Traditional Candlelight Service—Join us for a reflective service of carols and readings, ending with the traditional candle lighting and passing of the flame. The UUCR Adult Choir will offer selections, including the long-standing choral benediction of the “Hallelujah Chorus.”
From the money donated at both of our Christmas Eve services 60% will be given to the Food Project to fund Community Supported Agriculture in Lynn, Massachusetts by funding Lynn CSA memberships which will provide a healthy supply of sustainably grown, fresh vegetables, flowers, and herbs to Lynn CSA participants. 40% will be given to our established UUCR fund, “We Care” for disbursement to members and friends of the UUCR who are in need, the mission being to help our church family with the occasional gift of a food card, a Visa cash card, a retail store card, or a gas card. Kindly make checks payable to “UUCR” line item note Lynn CSA/UUCR We Care.
