The holiday celebrations in Unitarian Universalist congregations reflect the six Sources of our faith.

Our members come from a diverse faith background including Christian, Jewish, Pagan, Humanist, Atheist, and Agnostic among others. Thus we celebrate many faith traditions during their respective holiday seasons. These include Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter, Jewish holidays like Passover, and Pagan Summer and Winter Solstices, among others. Our holiday services use the stories and traditions creatively, calling us to our deeper humanity and our understanding of those traditions in light of our commitment to the inherent dignity of all persons.

We welcome congregational input for additional holiday celebrations and invite you to contact the Worship Team if you would like to include a future holiday service in our schedule.

We have several traditions we include in our services every year. One of them is a homecoming service called “Waters of the World” where congregants bring real or virtual water from a place they traveled during the summer months. Our summer worship tradition is to have a theme for all services. These services are often lead by our worship team members and selected other congregational leaders.
