Evensong

Please join us for the service of Evensong on Sunday, October 18, at 6:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. The Immanuel Choir will sing this beautiful and very traditional service. Evensong has been around for centuries and is most common in England and in American churches that have English roots. Many English churches sing Evensong daily. These services combine elements from even earlier services that were used by monks in monasteries, priests in churches, and laypeople in their homes. Evening devotional services can be traced back to the very earliest days of Christianity.

Evensong is a service of sung prayers, psalms, and canticles. Spoken prayers and Scripture readings are also included. Above all else, Evensong is a time of reverence and devotion at the close of the day, when we are comforted and encouraged by the Scriptrues and by prayers both sung and spoken. We hope you will join us for this beautiful service.
