Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

December 24, 2019, 5pm, 8pm, 10pm

First Parish in Lincoln invites you to one of our Christmas Eve Services!

The earlier service at 5 pm is designed for families with younger children. We’ll hear the Christmas story in word and song, sing carols, and light candles. Margit will give the homily, and Jenny will offer a prayer. We’ll have some of our elementary school-aged children participating in worship by offering one of the readings. Traditional carols and lots of candles!

The later services are designed for families, visitors and friends. Jenny will give the homily, and the deacon will offer a prayer. Ian and the choir will delight with festive musical anthems. We will close with “passing the light” from one candle to another as has been done in this sanctuary for so many years.

All the services include the opportunity to sing plenty of Christmas carols as well as the traditional lighting of candles. For some, sitting in the darkened sanctuary and watching as the light is passed from one to another is a highlight of the season.
