altBrad Conner will lead the annual Holiday song/Christmas carol sing-along accompanied by Robert Noble. Carol Krusemark, Laura Kalb, Buffie Groves and Larry Herz will also be joining in when they sing "Welcome Christmas" during the telling of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas."


at 4pm: Holiday Celebration Service

Led by First Parish staff with music by Bob & Fran Tyler and guests from the Gund Kwok Lion Dance Troupe

Come witness the power and beauty of lion dancing, settle in for a fireside chat with marshmallow “roasting,” and join in with the carols and festive cheer. Stay afterwards for holiday libation!

Gund Kwok, the only Asian Women Lion & Dragon Dance Troupe in the United States, was established in 1998, by UU Minister Cheng Imm Tan, to give Asian women an opportunity to express their creativity, power and strength through performing the lion and dragon dances. The lion and dragon dances are art forms which require martial arts discipline, endurance, flexibility and creativity. See more at:

Annual Cusp Service
Doris Smith coordinating
Usually the last service of the year has been a CUSP service led by parishioners. This lovely tradition was started by long-time parishioner, Charlie Schwerin, a number of years ago and continues to be a popular service. This year’s CUSP service will feature storytellers, including Dennis Ahern, Sharon McDonald, Sandy Seitz, Doris Smith and Jim West.
Storytelling is an art form that brings us together and can take us to all parts of the world, to shared experiences, to laughter and perhaps to tears. We look forward to sharing our tales with you. May your life be a good story!
