Holidays and Traditions
Throughout the year we celebrate many holidays and other special days, and often acknowledge others in the course of worship.
- Flower Communion
- Each participant is invited to bring a flower as a symbol of their own uniqueness and beauty as a human being, to contribute to a vibrant floral display, showing how each of us contributes to making a community of solidarity and beauty. A multigenerational service held each spring.
- Water Communion
- Bring water from a place or time that is deeply meaningful to you to be mingled in our common bowl in this multigenerational service each fall.
- Thanksgiving Bread Communion
- Celebrates gratitude, community, and the gifts of the earth in a multigenerational service each fall.
- We celebrate the deep roots of our faith in Christianity, and the rising life of spring in a multigenerational service, usually followed by an egg-hunt for children.
- Winter Solstice Celebration
- A multigenerational service recognizing the shortest day and the longest night of the year!
- We celebrate with two services on Christmas Eve, an afternoon service which is a “no rehearsal” Nativity Service where everyone is invited to participate, and a more traditional evening service with readings, carols, candles, and the Advent Wreath.
- Youth Service
- Our senior high youth group is offered the pulpit once each year for a service on a topic of their choice.
- Music Sunday
- One Sunday each year the service is turned over to Dr. Vincent Craig featuring the choir, with orchestral accompaniment, in a large-scale work.
