The weekend before Christmas will be a busy one at "First Church".  We hope you will join us for one or all of these events!


"Las Posadas"

Friday, December 20, 6:00 - 7:30pm

Las Posadas (The Inns) is a celebration remembering Mary and Joseph's travel to Bethlehem for the Roman census and their search for a place to stay.  The procession is a Mexican/Hispanic tradition.  


Hamburg's procession will be held regardless of the weather so dress warmly.  We'll sing Christmas Carols as we walk our way (two blocks) from St. John's Lutheran Church at 99 Church St. to First Reformed UCC at 76 S. Third St.  Upon arrival at First Reformed UCC, we will enjoy some fellowship with hot chocolate and cookies.  This is a family event for all ages.  Please be prepared to walk the two blocks between the two churches.  We suggest you park in the community lot at 4th and Pine Streets.  A free-will offering will benefit the community building spirit of Hamburg's Our Town Foundation.
