Join the congregation of St. Thomas on Sunday, December 30th at 9:00 am, for a Festival of Lessons and Carols.
The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century. In this service, we listen to Scripture lessons which recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News. Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson’s message and a brief prayer.
All are welcome to this wonderful service of Christian worship.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
We welcome all at St. Thomas Episcopal Church to celebrate with us!
