Candlelight Festival of Lessons and Carols

December 17, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Candlelight Festival of Lessons and Carols 

Music: Children’s, Youth and Chancel Choirs, and Bronze Voices Handbell Choir with flute, piano and organ. Traditional and new carols will highlight Christ’s Peace coming into our world.

Hear the Christmas story told in word and song in this traditional worship service, first celebrated in Cornwall, England, on Christmas Eve in 1880, and later made famous through annual worldwide radio and television broadcasts from Kings College, Cambridge. The Christmas story unfolds through readings from Genesis, Isaiah, and the Gospels. After each reading, carols and hymns are sung that reflect the message of the reading. Candles symbolize the light of Christ.
