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.

On the first Sunday of each month, we gather food to be distributed to local food pantries. We give to the Chester food pantry one month, then Horicon, then Schroon Lake. In this way, we support all three of our local food ministries.

If you have non-perishable food you'd like to donate, simply bring it on the first Sunday of the month and place it in the designated area.  A volunteer will gather all the food and bring it to that month's pantry.

Especially appreciated are canned meats and other sources of protein.
