This Sunday at UCCSV - 11/28/21

It's the First Sunday of Advent, a new year in our liturgical season. But it's also the start of so much more. This week we return to the sanctuary for in person worship while also staying online for a hybrid experience. For our very first hybrid service we'll be rather low tech. Instead of Zoom we'll be directly live streaming from a phone to our Facebook page. You do not need to have a Facebook account in order to watch. Facebook might prompt you to login or start an account but ignore that - you can still click on the video stream and watch it. If you have a facebook account you will be able to comment on the service but this will be much a less interactive service with those online than our usual Zoom worship. (Our AV equipment is being installed starting Monday, November 29th so we anticipate that our hybrid service on December 5th will be a much better experience for everyone, in person and online.)
But maybe the strange journey we are about to undertake as we begin a whole new way of worshiping is perfect for Advent. This Advent season we are joining together as "Travelers On A Journey". Every week we'll journey to a different Advent theme. This first Sunday of Advent we're going on a "Journey to Hope". We start Advent wreathed in shadows as the days get shorter and night falls earlier and earlier. We worry about the end of everything. How can we find hope in such murky times? But fear not! Together we will light one candle to begin to shed light on the gloom and move us closer and closer to Christmas. What will we find along the way and what will we learn from this journey? Come join us - in person or online - at 10am for worship and find out!
