The young adult brunch last Saturday was a fun and delicious get-together, with 20 adults present. Thank you UBC for providing childcare for the seven little ones so that their parents could enjoy adult conversation! We were happy to welcome quite a few new faces this month, and we would love to have anyone who’s interested join us next month at our regular date, the second Saturday, Dec. 13. (We don’t all attend worship at UBC, and all are welcome.) Our plan for next month is to enjoy Charlottesville’s Christmas decorations with our annual Holiday Lights Tour. Thanks Peter for driving the church bus! Mark your calendars now and invite a friend!
Last Sunday, we celebrated a Parent-Child dedication service, in which we dedicated eight babies/young children along with their families. During the sermon, a video that was filmed and created by the parents was shown in which each parent said words of love and blessing to their children.
Below is the Prezi presentation showing the portraits of our young families and children, the video that our parents made for their children, and the video of Joseph Johnson’s parents expressing their love and blessing to Joseph upon this ordination as deacon at UBC.
