On Sunday, December 11, the Third Sunday in Advent, the Worship Service tells the great story of the loving purposes of God through scripture readings, hymns and anthems.
The service is adapted for Advent from the annual service held Christmas Eve in the Chapel of King’s College, Cambridge University, England. Begun in 1918, it has been sung there every year to the present day and, moreover, has developed into a service beloved and repeated in cathedrals and churches throughout the world.
We hope you will join us at 11:00 am for this beautiful celebration of God’s love.
Following the service, everyone is invited to gather in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
