Lessons and Carols, December 23 at 7:00pm
The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. In this service, we listen to nine Scripture lessons which recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News. Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson’s message and a brief prayer. We celebrate this festival to honor the ending of the Advent Season and the beginning of Christmastide.
