Word and music come together to celebrate the birth of Jesus in “Lessons and Carols Service: A Prelude to the Advent Season,” hosted by Fresno Pacific University.
The service is collection of songs and Scripture readings. Performances are at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, November 23, in First Congregational Church, 2131 Van Ness Blvd. There is no admission charge but tickets are recommended. For tickets, call the FPU Music Office at 453-2267 or the church at 227-8489. A freewill offering will be taken.
The desire to honor the memory of friends and the future of students is the drive behind a new endowed scholarship at Fresno Pacific University.
The Weldon and Eloise Bowen Scholarship will provide $5,000 per year to students with financial need interested in careers in either music or education, particularly teaching people with special needs. The fund was set up by Janz and Patricia Mynderup on behalf of the Bowen estate.
