Holidays and Traditions
We recognize and celebrate holidays from many faith traditions. Here are our regular annual worship traditions.
Water Communion Sunday
We gather the first Sunday after Labor Day and celebrate the water that nourishes our bodies and spirits. Bring a small amount of water from a place that has meaning for you – perhaps a favorite watering hole or your kitchen sink. Each person will have the opportunity to pour their water into a shared vase and share the origin of their water. In recent years we’ve added the challenge of sharing in just 7 words or less!
The Flower Ceremony, sometimes referred to as Flower Communion or Flower Festival, is an annual ritual that celebrates beauty, human uniqueness, diversity, and community. In this ceremony, everyone in the congregation brings a flower. Each person places a flower in a shared vase. The congregation and minister bless the flowers, and then they’re redistributed. Each person brings home a different flower than the one they brought.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Services
Each Christmas Eve, we share in a traditional candlelight service. During this service, experience some of your favorite Christmas music. Let us gather our hearts together to share the beauty of story, music, and candlelight. Let us bring the spirit of Christmas into our lives and out into the world.
