THE CHURCH YEAR
January 6-February 17
Epiphany (ee-PIH-fuhny), meaning "manifestation" or "shining forth", is the celebration of God's incarnation in the child Jesus, and also that His gift of grace is extended to all, both Jew and Gentile. Epiphany contains several important festivals: First, the day of Epiphany celebrates the visit of the magi and their prophetic gifts declaring Jesus to be Messiah, priest, and king. Next, Jesus' baptism reminds us that Jesus came to fulfill all righteousness - and God the Father declares that Jesus is His Son. Finally, near the close of the Epiphany season comes the Transfiguration, commemorating the day when Christ, for just a brief moment, pulled back the curtain and let the disciples have just a glimpse of His Godly glory - and, once again, God the Father declares that Jesus is His Son. The two colors of Epiphany are White and Green - White for the glory and purity of Christ, and Green for spiritual growth which comes from hearing Christ's revelation as God. At the end of Epiphany, we come down from the mountaintop and begin the penitent walk toward Christ's passion and death in the season of Lent.
A welcoming church family made up
imperfect people rejoicing in God's restoration and forgiveness.
