Dec. 22 ~ Lessons & Carols

Celebrate the season at Grace!

When: Sunday, December 22 at 10 a.m.

Where: Grace Church Sanctuary

About:  Please join all the Grace Church choirs for a service of Lessons and Carols during Sunday morning worship. The story of the promise of the Messiah and the birth of Jesus is told in readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of anthems, spirituals and familiar carols. The service first took place in Truro Cathedral in 1880 and has since been celebrated in churches and cathedrals throughout the world. It is most famously broadcast from King’s College, Cambridge, and heard by millions of people world-wide.

We are located on the corner of Court and West.  For parking, enter our lot from
West Street.   Street parking is also available on Court Street. The handicap entrance may be accessed through the north side portico of Grace Church via the parking lot.  The elevator is located in the central part of the building.
