It’s So Bright! A Contemporary Christmas Pageant 
Join us for a fresh take on the heart-warming story of the first Christmas. Our children and youth are starring as cast and crew, and Music Director Mark Daugherty will lead us in song. There will be lots of opportunities for the congregation to sing, participate and catch the spirit. Young children can participate without rehearsals too!

Order of Service

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service 6:00pm
Looking Into the Manger with Rev. Libby Smith*, Music Director Mark Daugherty & the USG Choir

Come celebrate the holy birth of Jesus.  Come celebrate the sacred birth of the universe.  Come celebrate that every birth is a holy birth.  After all, Einstein said, “There are only two ways to live your life: as though nothing is a miracle, or as though everything is a miracle.” Christmas helps us to mindfully birth and celebrate Awe-inspiring love, courage and hope.
