Reiki Master to Share at 4oh!4 on Sunday

The monthly 4oh!4 Gathering will meet Sunday, December 28 at 4 o’clock in the basement of the United Church of Christ. Cindi Blanchard, a Reiki master, will share information about the relaxation and healing technique and involve participants in discussion. Reiki is a Japanese technique that utilizes “life force energy.”
Reiki is a practice that crosses traditional boundaries. People of multiple faith or no-faith traditions find the technique beneficial. Christians, for example, sometimes identify this “laying on hands” technique as similar to the healing Jesus practiced.
A simple meal will be provided as people gather followed by the learning and discussion session. Email 4oh4Condon@gmail.com or call or text 541-256-0565 with questions.
***There will be no morning worship or Bible study on Sunday, December 28th. Instead, you are encouraged to attend 4oh!4.

Christmas Eve Service at 8 p.m.

Christmas Eve Service at 8 p.m.

We’ve searched during the Advent season for hope, for peace, for joy, and for love only to have cropped-searching-advent-201411.pngthe Extravagant One come to us in the most unlikely of places. The Divine has become incarnate in our midst. The Divine has been born of human flesh among us and within us.

Into the silent night, the Divine comes to us as a poor infant living on the margins of society!

Join us for worship at 8 p.m. on December 24th!

Longest Night Service Tomorrow @ 5

Longest Night Service Tomorrow @ 5

Condon United Church of Christ will hold a Longest Night service on Sunday afternoon December 21 at 5:00 p.m. Sometimes called Blue Christmas, many Christian churches now hold Longest Night services to  recognize the sadness inherent in the Christmas season for many people.

“The service affirms that not everyone is as happy as our culture tells us we should be at this time of the year,” says Rev. Tim Graves, pastor of the UCC. “The holidays, especially Christmas, are often times when people feel the loss of loved ones, hopes, and dreams. Those searching for work or living in poverty often feel the pressures of spending money they do not have. Even those who appear to have it all, often struggle with depression or blue feelings as the long nights of winter press on.”
