We will have a short intergenerational service and then work together to decorate our sanctuary for the holidays. We will have ornament crafting stations to make decorations for our tree, and we will also decorate with greens. Please bring branches of greens we can use to decorate—and clippers if you have them.
Also, after coffee hour, we invite children of all ages to build gingerbread houses!

WHAT ARE SUUF SERVICES LIKE?
Skylands UU is a lay-led congregation, meaning that members from the Fellowship manage all aspects of our organization, through volunteer committees and elected congregational boards. Lay members also design and lead the majority of Sunday Services, which follow a monthly theme. We also invite outside members of the community to occasionally lead services. During the fall and spring we generally have one Sunday each month that is a "Service Sunday", where we all work on buildings and grounds projects together rather than having a presentation.
Each service follows a similar format including chalice lighting, readings, music, a time for expression of Joys & Concerns, Offeratory, a children's story, closing words, and extinguishing the chalice. The content of the main presentation can be very different week to week so we encourage folks to come back a few times to get a feel for the full range of all we have to offer.
There are also classes for the children during many services, although there are also services designed to be multigenerational and include children.
