Lessons and Carols

Jump start your Christmas spirit with a Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. This service comes to us from a 100 year old tradition started at King's College, England. Lessons from Scripture, interspersed with carols and choral selections, portray the story of our salvation, from the Garden of Eden to the birth of Christ. Take a break from the craze; sit back, reflect, pray and sing along.
