The service will be led by Linfield Chaplain David Massey. The program will be a traditional lessons and carols service with the reading of scripture lessons focusing on the Christmas story and the singing of carols celebrating the season.
Students from the Department of Modern Languages will participate and read three or four passages in different languages, as well as perform some of the carols in a variety of languages.
Cheryl Collins, adjunct professor of music at Linfield, will serve as organist for the program. A reception will follow. Linfield will be contributing to the community holiday food drive by having containers for food donation available at the service.
The candlelight service is sponsored by the Chaplain's Office and is open to the public. For more information, call 503-883-2259.
