  • University United Methodist Church 150 E. Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC 27516

Students from the University of North Carolina will come together at University United Methodist Church to lead a traditional service of Lessons and Carols. Students will read each of the nine scripture readings from the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, which was first held at King’s College in Cambridge on Christmas Eve in 1918. Music groups from the Wesley Campus Ministry, the Presbyterian Campus Ministry, the Newman Center and the Fellowship of Baptist Campus Ministries will be joined by the UNC Women’s Glee Club, the Tarpeggios, Vision and UNC music students to provide the music. The congregation will also join in singing carols, and the service will end with “Silent Night” being sung by candlelight. Hot chocolate will be served after the 7 service.  All are welcome.
