Vespers Service – Readings, Hymns and Candlelight

Saturday, Dec. 11th @ 7p

Please come and join us together in celebrating the coming of the Christ child in scripture readings, music and candlelight!

There will be hymns, songs, and Advent favorites – both in the current tradition and music passed down from generations ago.  Although the music changes thru-out the years, the scripture remains the same – telling us the timeless story of God’s Love sent here for the whole world to have and behold in Emmanuel – God with us!

Come and sing in the choir if you so desire, or come and sing in your seat!

Whatever your choice, simply come and partake in the blessing of song, scripture and candlelight for a weary world as we lift His name, our spirits and our candles on high!

The Vespers service is organized by the Music Director, Dylan Sauerwald, who will also accompany.  The NDMC Senior Elder and the NDMY Youth will be reading the scriptures.  The NDMC Choir will lead all the hymns and worship.  Please let us know if you are interested in reading as well!

** All of the sister church’s choir members are also welcome to sing in the choir!  Please contact NDMC for details on choral participation.

The more, the merrier!
