Service of Lessons & Carols — Christmas Eve

Sandro_Botticelli_080Join us on Christ­mas Eve for CURC’s annual Ser­vice of Lessons & Car­ols on Christ­mas Eve. This wor­ship ser­vice is mod­eled after the Angli­can “Fes­ti­val of Nine Lessons and Carols.” We hear seven lessons from God’s Word from Gen­e­sis to Rev­e­la­tion trac­ing the his­tory of sal­va­tion and its ful­fill­ment in Christ. After each Scrip­ture les­son, we sing a cor­re­spond­ing Christ­mas hymn, prais­ing God for his faith­ful­ness in send­ing the Christ to crush the serpent’s head, res­cue us from sin, and raise our bod­ies from the dead on the last day. Come and wor­ship the King this evening. Veiled in flesh the God­head see, Hail th’incarnate Deity!

Join us on Christ­mas Eve at 6.00pm. The ser­vice runs as follows:
