Carols are a big part of the Christmas season, yet we may not always take the time to contemplate their meaning. From "Joy to the World" to "Silent Night," the songs of Christmas help give meaning to story of Jesus’ birth. What do they say? How do the carols correspond with scriptures? Let’s explore this together in our Advent sermon series, “Caroling: The Songs of Christmas.” All are welcome, and there is more than enough grace to go around!
