The Christian Women’s Connection December Brunch is set for Monday, Dec. 10, from 8:45 to 10:30 a.m. in the Lighthouse Point Room at the Danversport Yacht Club, 161 Elliott St., Danvers. Speaker Mim McCarthy will share a dramatic presentation of how she “had it all” but found it wasn’t enough, lost it all and gained peace. Brunch is $13 inclusive. All women are welcome to attend, and free child care is available for children up to age 5. Reservations are required by Saturday, Dec. 8. For more information, to make a reservation, for child care or for a cancellation, call Jan at 978-532-1379 or 978-303-7873 or Laura at 978-532-2157.

Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish presents an Advent Reflection Program, which will focus on four manageable themes: “The Three Comings of Jesus,” “St. John the Baptist,” “St. Joseph: A Man Forgotten” and “Our Blessed Mother Mary.” Father Steele, Linda Newall and Pat Bachelder will lead the discussion. Participants will use Archbishop Timothy Dolan’s Advent Book. Sessions meet on Tuesdays, Dec. 4 and 11, from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. or 7 to 8 p.m. at 80 Atlantic Ave., Marblehead. All are welcome to participate. For more information or to register, contact Kathleen Nelson at 781-631-8340 or Father Steele at 781-631-0086. Participants will receive Dolan’s book at the first meeting.

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lynn is accepting registrations for Sunday faith development classes for children and youths ages 2 to 18. Participants spend 15 minutes in worship with their parents, starting at 10 a.m., and after a “Time for All Ages,” they will leave for their classrooms. Children, youths and adults spend time together for fellowship after the service and classes. For more information, contact Karen Brown, director of faith development, at 781-589-8836, ext. 12, or kbrown@uucgl.org. The church is at 101 Forest Ave., Swampscott.

Throughout December, St. Adelaide Church, 708 Lowell St., Peabody, will collect unwanted books in support of the North Shore Moving Market. Proceeds from the sale of donated books help provide free monthly grocery deliveries to the North Shore’s housebound elderly and handicapped residents. Books should be in new or good readable condition; no children’s books will be accepted. Books may be dropped off before Masses or in the church hall on Sundays from 8 a.m. to noon or Mondays and Tuesdays from 3 to 6 p.m., through the end of December. For more information, call North Shore Moving Market at 978-744-2532.
