  • Calm and Bright: 200 Years of Silent Night
    This year is the 200th anniversary of the debut of "Silent Night, Holy Night." This hymn has become the best-loved worship moment of so many when it comes to Christmas Eve. Something mystical occurs as we light our candles and sing the hope of "all is calm, all is bright" - peace and light for the world. In what has been at times a very dark year for our world, this message of hope is desperately needed. So during Advent and Christmas this year we will celebrate this carol's message for us and highlight its call for our lives so that it can guide us all year long. Join us for the start of our Advent journey together on Sunday, December 2nd. Mark your calendars now for all our Advent and Christmas services as each one will have its own special focus and flair. On December 2nd we will also honor World AIDS day, on December 9th we will welcome new members to our UCCSV family, and on December 16th we will celebrate our annual Christmas Pageant and that's just the beginning! You won't want to miss a chance to feed your soul during the hectic holiday season by finding calm and light in worship with us this year.
     
  • Christmas Eve Worship 7:30pm

    Please join us (and bring your friends and family) for a joyous and beautiful Intergenerational Christmas Eve Worship Service at 7:30pm on Monday, December 24th. We'll sing your favorite Christmas songs while listening to scripture and poetry tell us the familiar and yet amazing Christmas story. Together we'll create a mash up manger scene at the front of the sanctuary. We'll light candles and use glow sticks as we finally sing together our theme song for Advent, Silent Night. There will be lots of wonderful special music from our choir, several brass instruments, and more! You won't want to miss this once a year unique service at UCCSV. Make this year so Calm and Bright by joining us on this special night.
