Advent Festival of Lessons & Carols, December 16 at 5pm
As we continue our spiritual preparation for the birth of Jesus at Christmas, join us for this traditional service sung by The Chancel Choir and The Choral Scholars. Readings from scripture, seasonal hymns, and choral anthems proclaim God’s love, continued presence, and the promised coming of the Messiah. All are welcome and free child care is provided.
Following this beautiful service, all are invited to join us for a soup and salad dinner.
Pop-Up Advent Pageant, December 9 at 10am
This year the 10am worship service on Sunday, December 9th will include a Pop-Up Advent Pageant that will tell the story of The Nativity with all the familiar players and carols, but with no rehearsal! This multigenerational experience will cast all characters on-the-spot at 9:15am, from shepherds to angels to animals, with basic costumes provided for everyone who wishes to participate. Pageants are especially memorable for our children and youth, so come at 9:15am that morning to get your part.
