Lesson and Carols

Lessons and Carols services are led by the Peace Choir and Orchestra, we will hear alternating Scripture readings and music. Readings will begin with the Old Testament prophecies concerning the coming Messiah. These prophetic passages were written centuries before Jesus was born. Then we'll hear the powerful Christmas story, the beautiful account from the Book of Luke. Throughout, the Choir and Orchestra will present a wide range of music, from powerful anthems of celebration to poignant reminders of our need for this Babe of Bethlehem. And, of course, we'll sing many of our favorite carols together. 

Come and join us for this special time of worship on Sunday, December 3rd at 8:30 and 10:30 am!

Wednesdays, Dec. 6, 13, & 20, 2017

"Christmas With No Strings Attached!" 

Why did Jesus make His appearance at Christmas?

It was to teach us a new way to love- love with no strings attached. Join us for our Advent Wednesday worship services as we examine Jesus' radical love- love for a betrayer, for a denier, for deserters, for us!  


Wednesdays December 6, 13, and 20 at 7:15 pm. 

Come at 6:30 pm before the service and enjoy

a pre-service dessert social!
