Christmas Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols

The Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols is a celebration of Old and New Testament readings, carols, and music to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The St. Barnabas Choirs (Adult, Youth, and Handbell) will perform anthems as well as lead the congregation in the beautiful carols we have all come to love. Please join us in the St. Barnabas sanctuary on Sunday, December 16, at 4 p.m.

We are blessed with the music leadership of Director of Music and Choir/Organist Michael Chertock, Assistant Director of Music and Handbell Choir Janet Beckmeyer, and Directors of Youth Choir Diane Byrne, Susan Hughes, and Bert Nelson who all guide the dedicated St. Barnabas musicians in service to the glory of God.

This service is a special gem and a lovely gift to give to your family, friends, and neighbors. We know how busy December is for everyone, so add this to your calendar now as a special gift to yourself—the gift of:

  • “ahhh” time to relax,

  • time to enjoy some simple pleasures,

  • time to find some calm amid the holiday chaos,

  • and time to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

We hope you’ll all join us for this special service and the reception that follows.
