Advent Lessons & Carols service

Join us on Dec. 1, 2019 during our regular Sunday morning worship for the Advent Lessons and Carols. This liturgy has been developed and used at the great English Cathedral at Salisbury and at St. James Cathedral in Chicago, and aims to recapture that Advent longing and hope. It begins in darkness with the Advent Responsory, in which Christ's coming is announced. The Blessing of Light follows, and, as the Service unfolds, the cathedral is transformed from darkness to light.  The scripture readings come in pairs. An Old Testament reading speaks of God’s promise. A New Testament reading proclaims how the promise is being fulfilled in Christ. And each pair is accented by a musical response that heightens our expectation and invites our trust in the coming of Christ as Judge and Redeemer.  Hymns and anthems are chosen to represent the message of the readings. (St. James Music Press)​

Advent Adventure is Tuesday, December 3rd

Dinner is at 6, and all is provided- Lee's fried chicken dinner with all the trimmings (vegetarian and gluten free options also). After dinner, kids of all ages are invited to make their own edible nativity scenes, and the children will decorate the parish hall Christmas tree.​
