Holiday Events outside of Sunday services throughout the Seasons

Each season brings several special Holiday events designed especially to include families.  

Samhain Celebration

The Sunday before Thanksgiving we hold our traditional telling of “Stone Soup” concluding with our kids serving a stone soup they have made. 

In the winter we gather after the first Sunday service in December to Deck the Halls with lots of crafts from snowflakes to wreaths for families to make.

Deck the Halls

Families are especially invited to early evening celebrations for Yule, the Winter Solstice December 21st, We conclude celebrating with a Solstice ritual of letting go and sending our hopes in the fire with the Yule log.

We will also have a service at 6:00 pm on Christmas Eve December 24th.  

Spring celebrations start off with Eostar (Spring Equinox) Egg Hunt. Then we celebrate Easter with a Flower Communion and exploration of transformation through understanding the miracle of butterflies. We will also celebrate Beltane on May 5th.

Come join our all congregational retreat here at UUCM May 17th-19th. There will be programs for kids and parents especially on May 18th.
