The annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a beloved tradition at Immanuel featuring the Chancel Choir with Mark Singleton, Director, and Stephen Scarlato, Organist, joined by a string quartet. Readers of the nine lessons are members and friends of the church. The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols celebrates the coming and birth of Jesus. The story of the promised Messiah and the birth of Jesus is told in nine Bible readings from the Prophets and the Gospels interspersed with the singing of traditional Christmas carols and choral music. Invite family and friends to come share in this very meaningful experience. An offering will be collected to help defray the expenses of this special service. A delightful reception will take place in Fellowship Hall following the service. We hope you'll join us!
