Have a glass of mulled wine and enjoy our old-fashioned, radio theatre style reading (featuring genuine Welsh accents). Please e-mail info@waverlyucc.org for Paul & Lisa’s address.

Wednesday, December 21st 7:00 pm – Carolling: Come on by the church after dinner, bring your own after-dinner refreshment, and we’ll sing our favorite Christmas songs together with accompaniment by Theo Burke. (We had planned this event for an earlier date but cancelled it due to snow and ice. Thanks to Theo for his flexibility and offering to reschedule!)

Sunday, December 18th 11:00 a.m. – Worship and Christmas Pageant – The children present the Christmas Story to the Congregation. The Congregation will sing Christmas songs as they fit into the script. The Pageant takes place during the regular 11 AM service. Any last-minute performers are welcome (especially little sheep and angels). Children and youth that would like to take part, please come to the church at 9:30 a.m. and we will have a costume for you to wear.

Thursday, Dec. 22nd 7:00pm – Longest Night/Blue Christmas Worship: Not everyone is feeling cheery during the holidays, some people are living through dark times.  This reflective service honors where we really are and creates space for healing.

 Saturday, Dec. 24th 11pm – Christmas Eve Service – Christmas Eve Family Candlelight Service, 11pm. A lovely and simple traditional service. We will ring in Christmas singing carols, listening to the choir, hearing again the story of Jesus’ birth into poverty and promise. This really is a family service. It’s a special time for all.

Sunday, December 25th 11am – Merry Christmas Worship
