Lessons & Carols – Dec. 11

Join us Sunday, Dec. 11 at 5 p.m. for a Festival of Lessons & Carols, which traces the history of salvation. Enjoy beloved hymns, choral music, and readings that walk us from Adam’s original sin in the book of Genesis, to the prophetic songs of Isaiah and a people shrouded in darkness, and finally, into the resplendent mystery of Christ’s incarnation through the Gospel of Matthew.
