We will present the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 18th at 4 p.m. Our adult, children’s, youth and handbell choirs will sing and ring. The Artaria String Quartet will be playing and accompanying on several pieces. Carols of the season will be sung and anthems by Max Reger, Hugo Distler, Ralph Vaughan Williams and others will be heard. A festive reception follows. This is a popular service and you are encouraged to come early for good seats. Invite your friends and neighbors to attend this gift of the season! Childcare is available. A festive reception and a blessing of the grand piano in the Fireside Room will follow.
