Lessons and Carols
Tomorrow is the night our 3rd through 6th graders share this beautiful Christmas service with you at 6:30 p.m. in the main sanctuary. Please have your student report to his or her classroom or homeroom teacher in the small chapel at 6:10 pm. The dress for this event is dressy casual; this includes slacks, button down shirts, dress shirts, polos or V-necks for the gentlemen, and dresses, skirts or pants for the ladies. Please no jeans, shorts, t-shirts, or sweatshirts. No hats, please. Christmas colors are optional.
