The Advent Festival of Lights service, titled “Maiden, Matron, Matriarch,” will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, at St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church.

The annual candlelit service seeks to illuminate the feminine face of God, with a focus this year on the power of female generations.

The service will feature readings, prayers, instrumental music and congregational singing.

Before the service, beginning at 5:30 p.m., a light-fare potluck dinner will take place in the Murphey Gallery at St. Philip’s.

Monetary donations will be accepted for the Emerge! Center Against Domestic Abuse. The nonprofit provides domestic-abuse crisis intervention and housing, prevention and education, and support and advocacy services to women and children.

The service is free and open to the public.

St. Philip’s is at 4440 N. Campbell Ave. at East River Road. Parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar covered parking structure on the east side. The office phone is 299-6421.
