On Dec. 18th, UUCC holds its annual holiday fundraising service this year, “Light Shining in Darkness,“ benefiting Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, a Half Moon Bay organization dedicated to helping Coastsiders experiencing or at risk for homelessness. 100% of proceeds go to Abundant Grace Coastside Worker.
We celebrate the December holidays with poetry, carols, music, dance, and one holiday skit. And we pay special tribute to Hanukkah, Christmas, and the Winter Solstice. Participants include Eric DeBode of Abundant Grace Coastside Worker, Rabbi Moshe Tom Heyn of the Coastside Jewish Community, Shauna Pickett-Gordon and members of the Peninsula Scottish Fiddlers, Julie and Brian Novak-McSweeney, Tom Devine and the UUCC Choir, featuring LindaGrace Frost, and other wonderful musicians.
This live in-person service takes place at Odd Fellows Hall, 526 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, CA, 94019. Out of an abundance of caution, we require mask wearing for churchgoers throughout the service—with the exception of those actively speaking at the front of the room. Odd Fellows Hall has quite new high-circulation air ventilation system. Since May, with our mask protocols in place, no one attending our in-person services at Odd Fellows Hall has caught COVID. If you are a first-time visitor, we ask for proof of vaccinations.
