St. Paul Lutheran Church, 701 S. Pleasant Ave., Lodi
"Light of the World," by Mark Patterson, will be presented at both services on Sunday. Children, in traditional Nativity costumes, will sing and narrate the story of Jesus' birth. They will also sing part of "Silent Night" in German, and part of "Il est Né" ("He is Born") in French. Monica Swope, director of worship and music, is the director. On Dec. 30 — yes, Dec. 30 — there will be a Christmas hymn sing and celebration.
