Advent Lessons & Carols, December 2

Amidst the frantic hustle and bustle of the holidays, it is easy to forget that Advent is a time to stop, to be in the present, to pray and seek, and to prepare for the mystery of Christmas.

This unique service includes seven lessons that retell the prophecies of the coming Messiah and brings both the quiet reflection and joyful expectation of Advent to life in beautiful music. Allow this time and space to hear and reflect on the true joy of Christmas.

Sunday, December 2 at 6pm.
