News for December 26, 2023

This Sunday, Dec 31: In-person service at 10am

The Sunday after Christmas is traditionally "Story Sunday" at College Heights. This year Karen Conklin is bringing us a story set in Jerusalem, as we ponder the reality of war in the Holy Land.

The Giving Sunday offering for December is for the UCC's Christmas Fund, helping active and retired clergy and lay employees of the United Church of Christ.
