All are welcome to attend Community Worship services in Bigelow Chapel. Led twice a week by students, faculty, staff and guests, these half-hour weekday services acknowledge the diversity of liturgical traditions represented at United. One day might be a celebration of the Buddhist tradition or a Native American drumming service; another might be a creative Day of the Dead celebration or a stirring faculty induction address.

|Lamentation of Mary. Advent and the Christmas season are a time for many people to celebrate with family. But often, this expectation can be painful for those who have lost loved ones or are isolated. This Community Worship, layered upon the Advent liturgy of waiting and watchfulness for God’s presence, is a service of attentiveness to this aspect of waiting In light of these losses, including the events of Ferguson, New York, Cleveland and other parts of the U.S.|
|Festival of Lessons & Carols
Lessons and Carols is one of the most anticipated Community Worship services of the year at United. Based on the tradition at Kings College in Cambridge, UK, United’s adaptation makes the service contemporary and relevant, inviting you to slow down to be present to the sacred messages of the season.
