The seasonal splendor of the Glory of Christmas begins with the traditional holiday processional: Adeste Fidelis (O Come All Ye Faithful)first a single soprano begins processing quietly from the entrance, followed by the glorious pageantry of the festive choral processional joined by the congregation, pipe organ, and timpani. Through a creative blend of congregational Christmas carols, solos, instruments, with the spoken word, the nativity story unfolds with colorful wonder. Both scriptures and contemporary readings recount the Christmas Story. Our renowned pipe organ is featured to fill our wonderfully restored sanctuary with the glorious sounds of Angels, Wisemen, and Shepherds.

We end the service with John Rutter's traditional Candlelight Carol and Silent Night as the single candle of the Spirit of Christmas is passed from one to another to fill our hearts with a renewed light of hope and peace.
