DECEMBER SERVICES

December Theme

Season of Light ~ Season of Dark

Sunday, December 1 - Rev. Cathy Harrington
10:30 Service: "The Gift"

Major wisdom traditions exalt giving, and the Bible says it is more blessed to give than to receive. Our service will counter this by proving that giving and receiving are equally blessed.

Sunday, December 8 - Renée Russell, UUCGT Director of Music
10:30 Service: "All Music Service"

This All Music Service will include individual pieces performed by members and friends of our congregation, a string ensemble, vocalists, piano, UU Ukes, choral music performed by UUCGT's Vocal Ensemble and many other musicians. Please join us for an inspiring morning of music.

Sunday, December 15 - Rev. Cathy Harrington
