FESTIVAL OF NINE LESSONS AND CAROLS 5:00 PM, a reception will follow in the Great Hall
The traditional and much-beloved Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, as we know it today, was adapted by The Very Reverend Eric Milner-White for use at King’s College Chapel, Cambridge on Christmas Eve 1918. In his words, ‘The main theme
is the development of the loving purposes of God …’ seen ‘through the windows and words of the Bible’. The Christmas story unfolds interspersed by seasonal carols as the story of the birth of the Christ Child is recounted through word and music. The center of the service is still found by those who ‘go in heart and mind’ and who consent to follow where the story leads. Please plan to join us for this very special liturgy.
Pick up your order today in the Great Hall. Proceeds will benefit the Nicaraguan Ministry.
UTO (UNITED THANKS OFFERING) INGATHERING: As we herald in the season of Advent, we prayerfully prepare for our Lord Jesus Christ and the remembrance of his birth in a lowly stable. Let us reflect on all that God has done for us through his son Jesus Christ. During our reflections, let us bless others with coins in the Blue Box. “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:4
