Holidays and Traditions
UUFoM celebrates Christian holidays like Christmas, Jewish holidays like Passover, and Pagan Winter Solstice, among others. Our holiday services use secular and religious stories and traditions creatively.
In addition to religious holidays, we also honor secular holidays including Earth Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Indigenous Peoples Day, and Thanksgiving.
Ingathering/Water Communion (September) We celebrate the renewal of community by bringing our whole selves along with a water communion ceremony.
Commitment Sunday (September) We celebrate our various commitments to our shared faith community.
Transgender Day of Remembrance (November) We honor the memory of transgender and nonbinary people who lost their lives to violence in the past year.
Thanksgiving (November) We celebrate abundance with gratitude, often with an informal potluck dinner.
Choir Sunday (December) Our fabulous choir members present an annual music-filled service where songs of the season are sung in celebration of the onset of winter and the holidays.
Christmas Eve (December) A service of word and music celebrating the hope and promise of the Biblical story, as well as other sources of meaning, such as the stars and the spark of life within us all.
Flower Communion (June) We celebrate the earth’s natural beauty, our own great diversity.
