Huntingdon Invites Community to Christmas Celebration

Huntingdon Choirs sing for A Service of Lessons and Carols

Montgomery, Ala.—Huntingdon College will present its annual Community Christmas Celebration and A Service of Lessons and Carols, Thursday, December 1, beginning on the College campus in front of Flowers Hall. Three events round out the tradition.

The Marching Scarlet and Grey will lead Saint Nicholas to campus at 6:30 p.m. at the College’s main entrance. Caroling and music will follow. Children are invited to visit with St. Nick in Houghton Library Atrium after his arrival.

The trees in front of Flowers Hall will be lit at 6:45 p.m. This year’s special guests for the tree lighting are the Reverend Dr. Jeremy Pridgeon, senior pastor of First United Methodist Church-Montgomery and a Huntingdon trustee, and his family, including wife Abigail Pridgeon, a Huntingdon alumna.

The highlight of the evening is the traditional Service of Lessons and Carols, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in Ligon Chapel, Flowers Hall. Biblical readings are interspersed with musical selections performed by the Huntingdon College Concert Choir and other College musicians, and reflect on the story of the nativity of Jesus.

The events, part of the College’s Community and Cultural Events Series sponsored by Baptist Health, are free and open to the public.

Huntingdon College, grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, is committed to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom, and service and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
