“Festival of Lessons and Carols,” choral Christmas program
Wesley Chorale, Marie Severing, director

The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that tells the story of the Good News of Jesus Christ. In this service, we listen to Scripture readings 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. Welcome to this special Advent celebration. 

Congregation will sing:

All Creatures of Our God and King, Hymnal #62, verses 1 & 5

Good Christian Friends, Rejoice, Hymnal #224, verses 1 & 2

Joy to the World, Hymnal #245, verses 1 & 4

O Come, All Ye Faithful, Hymnal #234, verses 1 & 3
