Asbury Church to present “Lessons & Carols: The Songs of Christmas” on Dec. 4

MADISON – Asbury Church will celebrate the season of Advent through two “Lessons & Carols: The Songs of Christmas” services on Dec. 4 at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Asbury’s diverse music groups, with kids and students choirs, the men and women ensembles, and Chancel Choir, along with the orchestra, handbells, plus contemporary and Harvest Campus worship teams, will delight all who come. They will perform “The Songs of Christmas” through a collection of scripture and music, which is a much-loved annual tradition.

Through this hour-long family-friendly service, those who attend will travel through God’s story from the garden with Adam and Eve through Abraham and the prophets’ foretelling of our Savior, to the preparation for His arrival and the celebration of His birth.

“Asbury Church has a rich history of bringing the love and light of Christ to our community, through local and global ministry opportunities, worship experiences, and iconic Christmas music throughout the season of Advent,” shared Lori Bailey, Director of Traditional Worship at Asbury. “As newbies ourselves to the Asbury community, my family is expectant about experiencing Christmas in Madison for the first time.”

“We invite everyone to join us during this season as the Lessons and Carols services pave the way through Advent towards our final celebrations,” she added. “Hot chocolate and cookies will be served afterward, and we’d love for everyone to share in this opportunity to grow deeper connections and feel the warmth that defines Asbury Church.”
Lessons & Carols will take place in the Building 2 Sanctuary on Asbury’s Madison Campus at 980 Hughes Road. Families are invited to experience this free event.

KidsCare will be available for ages 3 and under only during both services.

Families are also invited to participate in Asbury’s other Advent celebrations, including the “Neighborhood Caroling Night” that will take the songs of Christmas into the adjoining community on Dec. 10, and any of the nine Christmas Eve services starting on Dec. 23.
