Join us for Christmas Eve Worship, Thursday, December 24th at 4:00PM (Family Service) and at 5:00PM for our traditional Candlelight Music Service.

4:00PM Family Service

We’ll have hot cocoa and animal crackers, sing familiar carols and hear classic Christmas readings. This is a magical service for young and old! The service, will be led by Director of Education Ministries, Meagan Henry.  The service will be held in the Chapel which will be decorated with Christmas greens and poinsettias. 

5:00PM Candlelight Music Service

From Bach and Praetorius, to Holst and Vaughan-Williams, we’ll hear new stunning arrangements of carols and spirituals, and even a touch of contemporary gospel.  Excerpts from some larger works will include Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Vaughan-Williams’ Fantasia on Christmas Carols, and Praetorius’ Mussae Sioniae.  Several stand-alone arrangements of Christmas favorites will feature more contemporary composers and arrangers including Burt, Dawson, Gjeilo, and First U’s own music director, Adam Podd.  

This year’s featured vocalists will be Wayne Arthur Paul (baritone), Brandon Selvin-Hornsby (tenor), Liz Bachman Thompson (mezzo), Melissa Paul-Perez (mezzo), and Candice Helfand-Rogers (soprano).  Music will be accompanied by brass quartet, as well as First Unitarian’s historic Mann & Trupiano pipe organ.
