The Kent United Church of Christ Chancel Choir will lead a Festival of Lessons and Carols, beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday, in the church's sanctuary.
Modeled after the Christmas Eve tradition of King's College Chapel, Cambridge, U.K., the festival tells the story of the coming of the Christ Child with favorite hymns and carols, other music of the season, and readings from scripture.
Following the service, a community dinner will be served in the church's VanMeter Hall, beginning about 5:15 p.m.
Kent United Church of Christ, located at 1400 E. Main St. (S.R. 59 at Horning Road), offers this event as a gift to the community.
The event is open to the public. There is no admission charge. For more information, visit the church's website, www.KentUCC.org, or by call the church office, 330-673-9534.
