Candlelight Festival of Lessons and Carols

December 18, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Music: Children’s, Youth and Chancel Choirs, with harp and woodwind.  Traditional Carols and selections choral favorites. Celebrate the Christmas story in word and song in this traditional worship service, first celebrated in Cornwall, England, on Christmas Eve in 1880. The service was later made famous through annual worldwide radio 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. We light candles to symbolize the light of Christ entering our world.
