Lessons and Carols has become a tradition at Converse, and is a service of worship involving all segments of the local community. The festival is a customary worship that celebrates the holiday season. Traditional Christmas carols and hymns, along with student-led scripture readings and poems will be presented as a part of the program. The Spartanburg Festival Chorus, Converse Wind Ensemble, Converse Chamber Singers and Converse Choral are all scheduled to perform.

In addition to the two Christmas trees on Twichell stage, luminaries will line the front campus for the evening's glow. Funds collected from the sale of luminaries will be contributed to The Haven, an emergency shelter for women and families.
