Announcements

  • Worship on Sundays

    Please join us for Worship at 10am every Sunday.

  • This Sunday at UCCSV - 12/8/19
    It's the Second Sunday of Advent and we're focused on peace. Peace requires letting go and finding perspective. Right sizing ourselves and our struggles in the midst of the whole story of time. Peace means grounding ourselves in justice. The fate of the world doesn't rest on us alone. But finding our own peace contributes to the peace of the world. And coming to a sense of peace about the circumstances of our lives may change more than we know. In the rich dark of winter we can find peace by embracing the dark and our place in it. Spend some cozy sabbath time in worship this week starting at 10am. We'll also welcome 5 new members into our community and celebrate the light they share with us and that we can share with them.
     
  • Impromptu Christmas Pageant December 15th

    Every year, churches fret over the Christmas pageant. They wonder who will show up for practice, when will the kids have time to practice, will Johnny remember his lines, and so on. It is unlikely that the first Christmas was well organized or that everything went smoothly. In fact, things were probably pretty chaotic. So in keeping wtih the spirit of the first Christmas, this year, we are going to try a little something different with our pageant. Yes, we are having one! But there will be no practice. It will be an impromptu pageant. It will be unrehearsed and might get a little chaotic. But maybe, just maybe, it will reflect the first Christmas a little more closely. And the best part is that everyone will have a chance to participate in the story of remembering the birth of the One who is our Savior. Join us in worship on December 15th at 10am and be a part of the celebration, no preparation needed!

  • In the Rich Dark of Winter: A Cozy Advent

    Sunday, December 1st, is the first Sunday in Advent and we invite you to take a journey with us into the rich dark of the season. There's fewer hours to the day and it's cold out, but at UCCSV we're finding beauty in the shadows, basking in the candlelight, wrapping ourselves in God's love, and finding sabbath rest in the midst of the busyness of the holiday season. As we prepare for Christmas Eve and get ready for the light of the world to break into our lives, we are wondering what gifts we can find when we slow down, listen for God, and get cozy in a beautiful sanctuary filled with beloved community. Be a part of something special this holiday season!

  • Two Good Foods Month

    December is TWO GOOD foods month. Please bring 2 cans, 2 boxes, 2 bags, 2 bottles, or 2 packages of any non-perishable food for Seneca Valley UCC to donate to the Germantown Help food bank during the month of December. We've recently heard that Germantown Help is struggling to keep its food pantry shelves filled. Let's remedy that situation. Help us feed needy families in our community!
