LESSONS AND CAROLS: A FESTIVAL IN WORD AND SONG TO PREPARE FOR CHRISTMAS

LESSONS AND CAROLS: A FESTIVAL IN WORD AND SONG TO PREPARE FOR CHRISTMAS

Sunday, December 11, 2016 at 4 pm
Saint Michael Church
This event is free and open to the public. Good will offerings accepted.

Each December, Saint Michael Church invites us to reflect and enjoy "Lessons and Carols," a Christmas celebration modeled on the festival  performed annually since 1918 at the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge University, in England.  The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song.  In this service, we listen to 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.

Join us and let the Lessons and Carols move us into an Advent and Christmas spirit of blessed peace, harmony and good will!
