Unitarian Universalist Church sets holiday schedule


Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing has released its 2018/19 Holiday Services Schedule.

The holiday season is fraught with expected cheer. However, the church offers a space to honor those who grieve during this time, feel the weight of the darkness and cold, or who generally feel out of sync with the forced happiness of the holidays.

Visit from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Dec. 19 for a Blue Christmas event, a service of readings, music and candlelight.

UUCWC offers Holiday Meditations at 9 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 23, when the Rev. Kimberly Wildszewski leads a service on meditations for the holiday season.

At 11 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 23, join the church for “Born In Bethlehem: A Christmas Pageant,” a participatory Nativity pageant during UUCWC’s family Christmas service.

On Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, hear “A Messiah Was Born,” at 8 p.m. Each year, the congregation gathers to retell the story of Christmas.

Wildszewski will reflect on what it means for a messiah to be born. The Crossing Chorale will sing excerpts from the “Messiah.”

The annual Generations Service: “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” takes place at 10 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 30.

As the congregation prepares to begin a new year, eight members of the congregation, representing eight different generations (teens through 80s), share stories of life’s inspirations and their optimism about their place in the world. Music will be by Natalie Acciani.

Beginning Jan. 6, Sunday services will be held at 9 and 11 a.m. Sunday children’s religious education and child care are available. Adult enrichment classes are open to guests. For information, call 609-737-0515 or visit
