LESSONS AND CAROLS
OF LESSONS AND CAROLS
Sunday, December 16
at 2:00pm in Church
All of our music groups and choirs participate!
Our mixed choir, children's choir, contemporary group, lite choir, and soloists. The service consists of short scripture readings from the old and new testaments, which tell the prophecy and events leading up to Christ's birth.
The highlight of the service is all the wonderful seasonal music that helps to enlighten the stories. The songs are classical, traditional, and contemporary. There are Advent and Christmas texts, arranged with joyful rhythms and melodies.
Why not take out a little time this season to listen to the story again in word and song.
Many have said, "I look forward to this every year", and "This is my Christmas gift to myself".
Come and enjoy with your friends and family!
Refreshments will be served.
will be held on Tuesday, December 18
from 1:00 - 3:00pm in Church
Advent is a joyful season as we await the celebration of the Lord's coming among us. Take some quiet time to spend with our Lord.
