2017 Advent and Christmas at Trinity

Advent 2017 Events

2nd Sunday of Advent - Children Christmas Program (Dec 11 at 11 am)

On the third Sunday in Advent we will have a very special worship service in which we will have the privilege of hearing the Christmas story told from the perspective of our children. We encourage you to invite friends and family with young children to join you for this worship service. It will be an all-inclusive, participatory, and fun service!

Musical Vespers at Alte Nikolaikirche (Sat, Dec 16, 5 pm at the Alte Nikolaiskirche)

For many years now the Sanctuary Choir performs Christmas anthems and hymns on the Saturday evening before the third Sunday of Advent in Frankfurt’s historic Alte Nikolai Church on the Römerberg across from the old city hall. Since 2015, it will be a combined program of Sanctuary Choir and Sanctuary Ringers. The evening vespers were followed by the traditional performance of well-known Advent music by the brass players positioned on the roof of the church. Come early to get a seat!

4th Sunday of Advent - Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols (Dec 17 at 11 am) 

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian worship celebrating the birth of Jesus that is traditionally followed at Christmas. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns, choir and handbell music.

Carols and Cookies - Come and Sing Along (Sat, Dec 23 at 4 pm)
