Newman UCC Presents: Close to Home Hybrid Worship in the Season of Advent


When something hits close to home, it affects us deeply. During the Advent and Christmas season, Newman UCC invites the wider community to join with us in journeying through scriptures and rituals that are tender, heavy with emotion, and vulnerable. We each carry the memories and truths of this season close to our hearts. And the “Close to Home” Advent theme an “already but not yet” tension within our Christian faith.

Emmanuel is with us, and yet, God’s promised day — our everlasting home — is not yet fully realized. This Advent, we seek to name together the deep longing we embody for God to come close to us once again.

Make plans to join us for worship on Sunday mornings throughout Advent, Christmas and beyond.

November 28 through January 9
10:00am in-person and via live stream
