Joy of Christmas Past and Present

The Joy of Christmas Past and Present is a holiday tradition bringing together Augustana students and Augustana Lutheran Church in Andover, Ill.

Campus Ministries will provide free bus transportation from campus. Sign up for a ride.

The bus will pick up students at 6:30 p.m. at the Gerber Center parking lot.

Students and faculty join the community for this service of worship and music that starts at Augustana Lutheran Church in Andover. The Christmas story will be read in several different languages.

Special music will be provided by students and faculty, and a message will be given by the featured speaker. The service concludes with a procession to the Jenny Lind Chapel, completely lit by candlelight, for communion and caroling.

After the service, refreshments will be served in Luther Hall at Augustana Church.
