UMO schedules two holiday concerts


The University of Mount Olive will celebrate the Christmas season with two on-campus concerts.

Dec. 4

The annual Christmas by Candlelight Service has show times at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Hazel Waters Kornegay Assembly Hall.

Enjoy a Christ-centered service patterned after the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, a traditional English evening service that began in Cambridge in 1918.

Each service will include six scripture lessons, tracing salvation history and each reading will be followed by a Christmas selection from the UMO department of music.

The event is free, but a ticket is required.
