"The Baker's Dozen" - Rev, Ann Schranz, - 10:30 a.m.

In this multigenerational service, we explore themes of fairness and generosity. Do we get exactly what we pay for? Should we get exactly what we pay for? What if we have needs that cannot be satisfied by money changing hands? This participatory service will include a Saint Nicholas tale set in the Dutch colonial town later known as Albany, New York.

Kat Norman, Amy Randall, Rev. Ann Schranz, and friends

"Once More with Feeling" - Rev, Ann Schranz, - 10:30 a.m.

The traditional colors of the holidays are blue and white for Hanukkah, as well as green and red for Christmas. You may also have heard of "Blue Christmas" services. These services acknowledge that sometimes we may feel sad at this "cheery" time of year. Given recent events in our nation and in our world, we might wonder how people could be cheerful. We will explore the many moods of the holidays and perhaps find among the moods a consistent spiritual embrace.

Rev. Ann Schranz

"Christmas Eve" - Rev, Ann Schranz, - 7:00 p.m.

In a service filled with poetry, prose, special music, and congregational singing, we focus on Jesus. He was born in a humble setting outside the halls of power and prestige. Love is not the province of the powerful and the prestigious. Love is ours to receive, and love is ours to give.

Rev. Ellen Livingston and Rev. Ann Schranz
