The fourth Sunday in Advent will be a service of lessons and carols. Here’s what that means.
The service will include a lot of singing as we move into Christmas carols, including pieces like “Angels we have heard on high,” “What child is this,” “It came upon the midnight clear,” and several others. There is no formal sermon, but will include prayers and readings which help centre us in Christ and allow us to lift up our concerns and hopes to God.
It is also White Gift Sunday; these are donations for the Food Bank which has seen a massive increase in need. The name comes from a traditional practice of wrapping donations in white; however, this is not necessary and will most likely be removed by the Food Bank employees as they organize and distribute food. (See separate announcement for more details.)
We light the candle of love, have Sunday School and nursery care, and fellowship time after the service. We are delighted that Nena LaMarre is able to help lead the music.
