Gathering at the Nativity: Advent Events at UCU

ADVENT & CHRISTMAS WORSHIP SPOTLIGHT

Advent is a special time at the United Church of Underhill.  Each Sunday in worship, we will light candles signifying hope, peace, joy and love. You are also invited to bring in a nativity from home which we will display throughout the season. Each week we will also consider the nativity and what wondrous stories it has to tell!

Please join us for any or all of these events:
