West End United Methodist Church

Candlelighting 2020


This is West End UMC's traditional service of Advent and Christmas scripture readings, carols, and anthems. Each year all of the church choirs -- children and adult -- participate. This year, due to the COVID pandemic, the service is a blend of virtual, pre-recorded, and live. Children's choirs are virtual. Members of the adult Sanctuary and Chancel choirs pre-recorded anthems sitting in the pews, socially distanced, and wearing masks. Live in the sanctuary were Senior Minister Carol Cavin-Dillon with the prayers and scripture and a chamber choir to help lead the congregation (in their homes) in singing the carols.  A pdf of the program is available below and contains the entire service, including the members of each choir.
