THE CHURCH YEAR

Epiphany

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.

For Children and Youth

Running for Jesus will not be held this Sunday, November 16th.  We will resume Nov. 23rd.

Currently, our only regular educational time for children and youth is Running for Jesus, offered Sunday morning at 9:30.  This program includes infants through 2nd grade.

Children do not sit still for long! So let us harness that energy for the kingdom of God and show them to whom—and for whom—to run!  In this class, we incorporate music, prayer, and movement.  The children are beginning to commit simple and central Bible verses to memory as well as learning classic Biblical narratives.   The children are also learning to pray using their own words and learning to participate in the worship service.

We are ready and willing to expand our children's program as children of other ages come!

For Teens and Adults

Faith Discussion Group

Our faith discussion group meets Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM.  We are currently studying the books of Galatians, Colossians, and Philippians.  This group meets in the parsonage (4 Pax Lane, 1 mile down Old Schroon Road).  The discussion is casual, comfortable, and encourages participation, and you'll never be pressured to read or answer.  You do NOT have to "know the Bible" to come - in fact, learning more about the Bible is the reason we study it.  The subject matter is appropriate for age 15 and up.  Refreshments are provided.

Men's and Women's Bible Studies

Our Men's and Women's Bible Studies have concluded for the winter and will resume in May.
