Lessons & Carols: Asbury Church to present the annual tradition this Sunday

MADISON – Lessons & Carols will mark the beginning of the Manifest Advent season at Asbury Church on Sunday, Dec. 3, with services at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. This free annual tradition for the Madison community is a delightful celebration of the biblical narrative starting at creation and spanning the centuries until God was made manifest to humanity through the birth of His son Jesus. Rich scripture readings are beautifully paired with songs of rejoicing to remind listening ears and hearts of the joy of the season. And at the core is a heartfelt invitation to the community to experience the wonder of it all.

“Our hope is for Lessons & Carols to serve as a marked moment of celebration for families and friends in our community during this special time of year as we begin the Advent journey leading up to Christmas,” said Lori Bailey, Director of Traditional Worship at Asbury Church. “It’s a way we can come together to embrace the presence of the Light of the world who came down among us to shine bright with His hope, peace, joy, and love.”

The 3 pm and 6 pm services will highlight the wide array of the largely volunteer-based music groups at Asbury, including the Asbury Orchestra and Asbury Handbells, along with adult, student, and kids’ choirs. Special soloists and ensembles will also be featured as traditional and contemporary pieces combine into a timeless celebration for all. Families are invited to experience the services together, and KidsCare will be available for ages 3 and under. To learn more about music groups at Asbury and how you can share your own voice or instrument in upcoming services, visit weareasbury.com/music.

Lessons & Carols will take place in the Building 2 Sanctuary on Asbury’s Madison Campus at 980 Hughes Road. Families are also invited to participate in Sunday worship services throughout Advent as well as in any of the nine Christmas Eve services starting on Thursday, Dec. 21. Additional information will be available starting in November at weareasbury.com/christmas.
