December Events and Newsletter


Santa Lucia Tea ~ On Saturday December 15th at 4:00 pm join us in the Parish Hall for our annual (and much beloved!) Santa Lucia Tea. With her crown of candles and homemade Lucia Buns, our very own Santa Lucia and her ‘attendants’ will recreate an ages old Swedish tradition to usher in the holiday season. In addition, while enjoying tea and cookies, we will hear music and other entertainments performed by members of our community. Admission is free and all are welcome!

Gingerbread House Decorating
On Saturday December 22nd at 2:00 pm, children of all ages are welcome to join us in the Meetinghouse kitchen for an afternoon of gingerbread house decorating. We will provide the houses and the candy(and some healthy snacks too!). Please RSVP 934-2141

Intergenerational Service and Santa Potluck
The service on December 23 will be Intergenerational with the children remaining in the sanctuary and participating in the service. Classes on the16th (the week before) will be spent practicing for the service on the 23rd.
Following the Dec. 23rd service there will be a potluck lunch and we have it on good authority that a certain ‘Right, jolly, old elf’ is planning on being in the neighborhood that day! There will be a signup sheet in the Parish hall for people to indicate names and ages of children attending and the type of dish they are bringing to share (labeled in case of food allergies!).

Monday, December 24 at 6:00 pm ~ Candlelight Christmas Eve Service presented by the Rev. Dr. Anita Farber-Robertson.  Choir practice begins at 5:00 pm.
