We hope you will join us for worship in December as we remember the birth of Jesus and welcome the Christ in our lives today. Advent (the four weeks prior to Christmas Day) is a season of celebrating and beautiful ritual. Community United Church of Christ is a casual and friendly place where you are welcome whether this is your first Christmas at church or your 50th.

Currently we worship on Zoom on Sunday mornings. At 9-9:30 AM an intimate service of meditation in the style of the Taizé community in France is offered. From 10:30-11:30 AM we gather, all ages together, for singing, prayer, scripture and learning. Read about the schedule below. After both worship services we linger for conversation in small groups. This is a good time to get to know people and ask questions.

To receive the Zoom information, contact Pastor Lacey at lacey.cucc@gmail.com. Provide your name, phone number and email address and we will get back in touch with you.

A printable order of worship for each service is uploaded to the homepage of our website every Saturday morning.

If you have Advent candles, bring them to light together each week. Or, bring a single candle (wax or battery) if you have one.
