REDEEMER PRESBYTERIAN CHURH PRESENTS:
THE FESTIVAL OF NINE LESSONS AND CAROLS
Dec 24 | 4:30 p.m. & 6:00 p.m. | Redeemer Presbyterian Church
Our Christmas Eve service—a Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols—is patterned after the one held for more than a century at King’s College Cambridge in England. The Christmas story is told through readings from the prophets and gospels, with music from the Redeemer Choir and carols for the congregation with brass choir and organ. Come and experience the joy and hope we have in Christ as we celebrate his incarnation!
- Cost: Free to the public
- Name: Redeemer Presbyterian Church
Redeemer is a church situated in the heart of east Austin, but that draws people from neighborhoods throughout the city for worship and community. But what draws people to Redeemer? Perhaps the simplest way to answer that question and explain who we are is by looking at the significance behind our name.
At our core, we are a church centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ, the Redeemer. As a Christian church we believe the central message of the Bible is one of hope and good news for those who feel far from God, who are searching for meaning in a broken and confusing world, who feel burdened by the consequences of past decisions, and who hunger and thirst for a new kind of life. In Jesus, God provides the solution to any human need, and so we seek to be a church that centers all we do on the good news found in Christ.
Redeemer is part of an extended family of churches—the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA)—that helps provide accountability and integrity to our ministry. Presbyterians have a rich history of beliefs, practices, and stories that shape not only who we are currently, but also who we hope to be. Being “Presbyterian” also means that we are connected to a network of churches here in Austin that enables us to do more than we could if we were simply by ourselves.
We believe our faith (what we believe) is inseparably tied to the way we live out our lives in love and service to others. Christianity is designed to be lived out in a community of people—from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and places—who seek to help one another walk with God through the ups and downs of life. So, we aim to be not only a place where people come to worship, but also a people who share a common life together.
