Community United Church of Christ presents “A Festival of Lessons and Carols,” a service of music, scripture and prayer featuring string quartet, organ, piano, soloists and the Community UCC Chorus. “A Festival of Lessons and Carols” will take place at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at Community UCC.

The “Nine Lessons and Carols” is a traditional service originating in the Church of England. The Festival comprises Nine Lessons (readings from the Bible) and Nine musical performances. Together, the readings and the music tell the story of Creation, Prophecies of the Messiah, and Jesus’ Birth.

We’ll be joined by several guest musicians, and many members of our choir will perform solos. Lessons will be read by members of the Congregation and the community.

No admission, a freewill offering will be taken.
