The process of Christianization of East Java was carried out in the 19th century in the era of the Dutch East Indies government, which was spread by: Coenrad Laurens Coolen with a method that emphasized elements of Javanese culture and Johannes Emde who emphasized pure Christian teachings. Differences in preaching Christianity form a process of syncretism to produce a local belief, namely Christian Jawi Wetan. One of the traditions produced is the Undhuh-Undhuh Ceremony.This study aims to describe the process of implementing the Undhuh-Undhuh Ceremony at GKJW Mojowarno in order to determine the representation of the value of multiculturalism. The approach used in this research is qualitative with descriptive research type. The research data were obtained from various sources including: observations, interviews, documentation and literature review.The results of the study show that the Undhuh-Undhuh ceremony is a tradition of giving thanks to the members of the GKJW Mojowarno congregation for the blessings given by God and in the implementation of the Undhuh-Undhuh ceremony there are multicultural values. The Undhuh-Undhuh ceremony which should only involve the GKJW congregation, but in reality it also involves interfaith communities. This shows that the values of multiculturalism are embedded and have been implied into a form of social harmony and tolerance between religious communities.
