Newman UCC Presents: Invited Home Christmas Eve Worship


There is no room for Mary and Joseph in the inn. They are displaced from their home, journeying to fulfill their civic requirements to be counted in the census. And yet, the time comes to give birth where they are, and so a humble home is found. A place is made, among the feeding trough, in a cramped room abounding with chaos. In many ways, Jesus is born without an invitation, and yet, he devoted his life to inviting people who are cast out.

In the same way, we might imagine the story of Christmas as God’s invitation to be welcomed home despite all barriers.

This Christmas Eve, Newman UCC shares a message with the wider community that you, too are “Invited Home.” Please plan to join us for worship on December 24, in-person or via our live stream.

Invited Home: Christmas Eve Worship
Friday, December 24th at 5:00 pm and 11:00 pm
Festive Choral Prelude begins at 10:30pm

The live stream for worship may be accessed at www.YouTube.com/newmanucc or www.newmanucc.org/worship 

Newman UCC is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ and extends this invitation to one and all, living out the example of Jesus’ extravagant welcome.

Newman Congregational Church, United Church of Christ is located at 100 Newman Avenue, Rumford, RI 02916
