The Worship and Music Committee has decided to schedule an Advent Vespers service for the evening of December 12th at 7:00 PM. We're still hard at work hammering out details, but it will be a night of meditation and prayer, candlelight and beautiful music. It will mark the return of the bell choir and feature not just the Chancel Choir but a number of soloists and small groups.
It will be a worship service, not a concert, but it will be different from Sunday morning worship. We will be focused on the symbols of darkness and light, waiting and preparing - all themes of Advent. I'll be writing more about some of the specific music soon, but I hope you mark your calendar and spread the word. It should be a beautiful service, and it would be fantastic to share it with a full church!
