Advent is a time for us to prepare our hearts and minds for Jesus' coming. Journey with us as we delight in these expectant days. Though the way seems rough, we honor tradition and find new ways forward.

Worship of Lessons and Carols
10:15 am

The Advent Lessons & Carols service is based on the O Antiphons of Advent. Each lesson is paired with one of seven antiphons originally sung at Vespers as antiphons to the Magnificat. The antiphons address the Messiah with various titles drawn from the Hebrew scriptures. 

This is a beloved Advent tradition where we alternate music and spoken word to reflect on the Light that was brought into a dark world. Each text is followed by a musical work illuminating its lesson. The Sanctuary Choir, King of Glory Ringers, Choral Scholars, and children's choir will lead us through worship.  It will be a joy-filled event to usher in the birth of our Savior!
