A Service of Lessons and Carols

Friday, December 8, 7 pm
Sunday, December 10, 3 pm

Note:  This service did not take place in 2017 due to wildfires and mudslides. It will return as an annual event in December 2018.

In what has become an annual tradition, Providence singers and musicians, joined by the Laudate Youth Chorus, and under the direction of Rebecca Leftwich Hodson, present a traditional Service of Lessons and Carols. The audience will enjoy many opportunities to join in singing familiar seasonal carols. This reflective worship service is held in the beautiful, acoustically-vibrant stone sanctuary of First United Methodist Church, located at Garden and Anapamu Streets. 

As the Service of Lessons and Carols is a worship service we do not not sell tickets or assign seating. An offering will be received to defray expenses and to support the performing arts program at Providence. Doors open 30 minutes before the services. Seating is available on the main level and in the balcony of the spacious church.

Please note:  parking at the church is very limited. Plan to arrive early to find street or city lot parking.

We hope you will join us for this wonderful celebration of Christ’s birth!
