Produced by Cathy Waitman, First Reformed UCC’s Director of Christian Education, the tableau-style service features 35 youth and adult church members along with various hymns, solos and scripture readings. Narration will be provided Lisa Nelson and Walter Hoffman, consistory members, and directing is Rev. June Grubb, Minister of Pastoral Care for First Reformed UCC.
The service begins with the Lighting of Advent Candles, followed by The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. The Presentation of White Gifts will take place during the offering in which members will donate gifts they wrapped in white paper for clients of Crisis Ministry. Following the service, congregation members and guests are invited to the fellowship hall for a covered dish meal and Christmas fellowship. The church is located at 104 East Center Street, Lexington, and the public is invited.
