It is a UBC tradition to engage with some of our local ministry partners during the holiday season.  We want to provide opportunities for groups to serve together and to participate with staff members and clients from those agencies with the overall goal of sharing together the joy that is “God with Us”, Emmanuel.  We call this endeavor “Celebrate the Light,” which reminds us of our past history with “Lighthouse of Hope” while also pointing us to a new era of intimate, group-based involvement through service, hospitality, and giving.
