In 1934, sixteen years after he had introduced to King's College, Cambridge, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols for Christmas Eve, the Dean, Eric Milner-White, composed a further service - a Procession with Carols upon Advent Sunday. His desire for more imaginative forms of worship appears in the preface he wrote to that service: In the old English liturgies, the Advent Offices made a preparation for the coming of our Lord to this earth far more vivid and eager than those of our present prayer book. So an Advent carol service, if without precedent, is not without suitability, if it helps to express "the desire of all nations and ages."
The purpose of the service was not to celebrate Christmas, but to expect it.
Please join us for uur Advent Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on December 4th, 2022 at 9:30am. It will be followed by fellowship and family activities after the service.

New Life has been struggling with creating a five-year plan. The three seminars will get all of the attendees on the right track when it comes to thinking about the future of our congregation in the Lake Zurich community and then putting together a long range plan for our congregation. Everyone is invited to attend, including members of area WELS congregations who are struggling with the same issue.
