St. John’s, Worthington, invites you to a service of Advent Lessons and Carols on Sunday, November 19 at 5 p.m. (prelude beginning at 4:45)

“Darkness to Light” is a liturgy that strives to capture the Advent sense of hope and longing. The liturgy begins in darkness, and as it unfolds the nave is transformed from darkness to light. The service is structured around the verses of the great hymn “O Come, O Come Emmanuel”. The readings are presented in pairs – the Old Testament speaking of God’s promise and the New Testament showing how that promise is fulfilled in Christ; readings, choral anthems, and congregational carols complement each verse of the hymn, reflecting on the theme of the Christ who comes to save his people.

The Hospitality and Fellowship Committee will host a reception in the Atrium following the service. We invite you to enjoy worship in a beautiful and historic space. St. John’s is located at 700 High Street in Worthington, on the southeast corner of the Olde Worthington Village Green (High Street at SR 161). Visit www.StJohnsWorthington.org for more information.
