Celebrating the "Time after Epiphany"
The Twelve Days of Christmas come to a close on January 6th with the celbration of the Epiphany of Our Lord. "Epiphany" means manifestation and it is a day in which the church celebrates the "manifestation" or revealing of Christ to the world as the savior of and for the whole world. Matthew's narrative of the arrival of the Magi is often used to illustrate this.
During the time after, we celebrate the baptism of Jesus and his first sign of turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana and more. And as always, each Sunday we wrestle to discover and celebrate what this Gospel means for our lives and our world today. The "Time after Epiphany" draws to a close with the celebration of the Transfiguration of Our Lord on Sun day March 3rd and the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, March 6th. Come celebrate with us!
9a.m. each Sunday we gather for God's Service of Word and Sacrament.
We gather in song and thanksgiving for the abundance God provides, yet we know that this is God's Service, for we are forever the one's who receive.
We gather together to hear and experience God's Word of promise, hope and salvation each week.
We strive to lift and support one another in love and share an open table with all who hunger to know the love of God.
Each week, during the celebration of communion it is the Lord’s table. He is the host. All present are welcome to eat, to be strengthened and nourished, to be fed and forgiven, and to be gathered together as one with the whole body of Christ.
All are welcome at the Lord’s table.
We gladly welcome and encourage your presence among us to enrich and contribute to our community of faith with your unique gifts and personality.
"This is Christ's Church, there is a place for you here."
