A Service of Candlemas
January 29 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CST
A Service in Observance of Candlemas, the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord Jesus Christ, January 29, 5 p.m. with the Memphis Boy & Girl Choir. Candlemas is a service traditionally used to bless candles that would be used throughout the year. These candles symbolize Jesus who referred to himself as the “light of the world.” The service opens with the Nunc Dimittis or (The Song of Simeon) who had been promised by the Holy Spirit that he would not die until he had seen the Messiah. He spoke the words of the Nunc Dimittis while holding Jesus at the presentation in the Temple of Jerusalem. Join us Sunday, January 29, at 5 p.m. In person and livestream.
