Epiphany was January 6th.  Epiphany celebrates the arrival of the Magi in Bethlehem.  Gentiles saw Christ’s star from the East and came to worship Him.  Epiphany is sometimes called the Gentile Christmas.
 
The Season of Epiphany runs through Transfiguration Sunday (the Sunday before Ash Wednesday-March 6th this year).  During the Season of Epiphany the church focuses on the teachings and works of Jesus that demonstration that He is truly the Son of God incarnate, the Second Person of the Holy Trinity in flash (God/Man) and has come to save Jew ad Gentile alike.
 
With all that in mind, you’re invited to join us each Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. to receive what the Gospel gives (forgiveness of sins, adoption as sons and daughters, and life eternal). If you do not belong to a church or desire a caring fellowship that is faithful to both the Bible’s teachings and biblical liturgies and traditions consider . . .
