On Saturday, December 10th the four UCC congregations in the Birmingham area — First Congregational, Pilgrim, Beloved Community and Covenant Community — joined together for an Advent/Christmas celebration.
This annual event is a way for the four congregations to get to know each other better, share our worship traditions and celebrate the season. Around 100 people from the four congregations participated in the service which featured music, spoken word and scripture readings from each congregation.
The offering from the Advent service was donated to the UCC Christmas Fund. In addition to the Advent service, the four congregations also share a joint Maundy Thursday worship experience.
