ADVENT LESSONS AND CAROLS
Advent is a season of waiting, preparation and longing.
One of the best ways to enter well into Advent is to celebrate the promises of God for salvation that have been kept in the coming of Jesus Christ. Sunday evening, December 8th, at 5 p.m., we’ll walk this journey of promise and fulfillment together in scripture, music and prayer.
The service of Nine Lessons and Carols emerged in 1918 at Kings College, Cambridge, as a way to imaginatively engage the season. It is still celebrated each year and broadcast to millions around the world by way of the BBC (it is carried on the 24th of December on WFMT in Chicago). Our music may vary some from the lofty choir and organ of Kings’, but the shape of the service is the same, and its message unmistakable.
Please join us for this special service, and bring friends with you, especially those who may be asking, “what is the meaning of this holiday”? Childcare for ages 0-5 will be provided. A reception (light dinner) follows the service.
