A Special Sunday of Solidarity!

9:15am – A short, 30-minute service where we will sing, reflect on the Christmas message as it relates to our times, and celebrate as always our commitment to justice.

10:00am – Gather to vote on Evanston’s Sanctuary Community Resolution where we decide how we will work with other communities of faith in Evanston to do all we can, in our own ways, as communities of solidarity, strength, and hope.

11:00am – “Participatory Pageant for All”
We’ll enact the Christmas story and reflect on its meaning. Have you always wanted to be a star? Or maybe an angel, a wise person, or a shepherd? This is your chance! No advance preparation is required: costumes, props, and stage directions will be provided on the spot. A worship service for all ages.


Sharing of Holiday Treats
Sunday, December 17
After both services

We invite everyone to bring a special treat to pass – cookies or quickbread or pastry, special candies or crackers and cheese – whatever brings back special memories and puts you in the holiday mood. Our holiday repast will warm our hearts and lighten our spirits as we move into the darkest part of the year to strengthen our faith and hope.
