The season of Advent will be here before you know it, and I can’t think of a better way to kick off the season than to attend our Advent Lessons & Carols on Friday, December 1st at 7 pm. This seasonal concert will feature beautiful music and readings which will prepare us for the joyful birth of the Christ Child. Advent Lessons & Carols was originally celebrated at King’s College in England many years ago and is still part of many Anglican holiday traditions. The program will begin with a candlelight procession and will include music and readings about the coming of the Messiah in order to prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. The Good Shepherd Choir will be joined by vocal soloists, bell choir, men’s choir, and instrumentalists. The music will range from chant and traditional anthems, to gospel music and familiar congregational hymns.
Our mission partner for this concert will be Family Tree - House of Hope, which is dedicated to providing safe shelter and resources for homeless women with children. Invite your friends and neighbors, and help us spread the good news of Christ this Advent Season.
