St. John’s will be alive with the wonderful music of a service of Lessons and Carols on Sunday, December 15 at the 8:00 am and 10:15 am services. This is the 27th year musicians of St. John’s have shared Advent and Christmas music with the congregation. This joyous service, entitled “God’s Promise of True Light and Salvation,” will tell the Christmas story through spoken word and music. The lessons include Adam and Eve in the garden, the prophesy of the ancient prophets and the celebration at Jesus’ birth.

Joining the Senior Choir at the service this year will be an excellent trumpet trio of St. John’s members: Morgan Coy, Austin Efflandt, and Pastor Dave. The trumpets are playing on three hymn arrangements and have an exciting solo arrangement of “Angels We Have Heard on High.” The Senior Choir will sing two beautiful new compositions: “Long-Expected Dawn” with violinist Justin Sabelko and “All Praise to Thee.” The choir will also sing a rousing arrangement of the spiritual “Go Tell it on the Mountain.”

We are excited to have our Wednesday night music ensemble, “The Messengers,” participate in the Sunday morning service this year. They will also be presenting a service entitled “Christmas Rhythm and Readings” on Wednesday, December 11 at 6:30 pm.

Please invite your friends to join us both on Wednesday, December 11 and Sunday, December 15.
