Candle Lighting Service
Sunday, December 17 at 7:00 pm
Rev. David Mosher and our Licensed Unity Teachers invite you to join us for this beautiful service. A precious story will accompany the lighting of the 12 candles, and members of the congregation will also have their own candles to add light to the service. Please join us for this special celebration of the beginning of the Christmas season.
Burning Bowl Service
Sunday, January 7 at 10:00 am
A New Year brings the opportunity to release old habits, concerns or patterns that no longer serve us. Join Cindy Luton, L.U.T. as she leads us in a time to release and “burn” those items we wish to release, allowing the new and better to enter our lives.
November 1 – March 31
The cold weather is upon us. Imagine being one of our homeless friends. From November through March we will collect warm winter clothes for the Springfield Winter Warming Center. Please help us fill the Give Warmly boxes in our church entryway with coats, gloves, hats, socks, scarves, and other warm clothing. Chris Zelle makes sure the items are delivered to the Warming Center regularly.
S.O.S. Team Volunteers
Imagine what a hot, home-cooked meal can mean to our homeless friends this winter. Each month, on the 3rd Saturday, our great S.O.S. Team cooks and serves a meal for the guests of the Springfield Overflow Shelter. Please consider joining us as a cook, server or BOTH! We also fill 60 gift bags at Christmas with fun and practical gifts donated by our congregation. Our planning meetings are the 1st Sunday, after morning service. For questions and more info contact Sandy Sheppard.
You are welcome to participate!

The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic by John Shelby Spong
Based upon excellent scholarship, Spong explores the Gospel according to John. This readable and informative book reads like “a cross between a detective story and an adventure saga.”
This class is open to everyone. If you were not attending the class last spring, and missed the first 16 chapters, you have time to read those before we resume our study. Feel free to join in our lively discussion of this excellent book.
