Our K-5 Christmas celebration, A Festival of Lessons and Carols, is loosely modeled on the traditional service held in King's College Chapel at the University of Cambridge. The Festival, introduced in 1918, and broadcast to millions each Christmas Eve, includes carols and readings from the Bible. The opening carol is always "Once in Royal David's City." In preparing for the service, students commit to memory both scripture and sacred music. It is our hope that parents and guests experience not merely a performance, but a time of corporate worship as the school family celebrates the season of Christ's birth. The program will be held on Thursday, December 7, at 6:30 p.m. in the church sanctuary.
