Festival of Lessons and Carols

  • Date: Sunday, December 8, 2019
  • Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Description: The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. In this hour long service, we listen to nine short Scripture readings, “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 led by the St. James Adult and Children’s Choirs that reflects on the lesson's message
    and a brief prayer.
    Many have made it part of their annual Christmas celebrations. Make this the Advent that you do something for yourself.
    Take an hour to nourish your soul. Join us as we sing and read through our faith in a contemplative and joyous service.
    Refreshments will be served, with a freewill donation to facilitate purchase of pizza.
