What is Epiphany?
Question: "What is Epiphany / Three Kings’ Day?"
Answer: Epiphany is an ancient church festival celebrating the magi’s visit to the Christ Child (Matthew 2:1-12). It is kept on January 6. Epiphany is also called “Three Kings’ Day” and “Twelfth Day”—the latter name because January 6 is twelve days after Christmas; the eve of Epiphany is called “Twelfth Night.” It is celebrated mainly in Orthodox, Catholic, Anglican, and other liturgical churches.The word epiphany means “manifestation” or “revelation.” Thus, the holiday celebrates the manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles, represented by the magi (see Simeon’s prophecy in Luke 2:32). For some, Epiphany also commemorates the baptism of Jesus (Luke 3:21-22) and His turning water into wine (John 2:1-11)—manifestations of Christ’s divinity to the world.
Something New for the New Year
The foyer received new furniture for the new year. Thank you to Dave Lewis, Rev. Keith Cupples, and Bret Pope for making this possible through their funds and time they donated! We hope you enjoy the more comfortable (and attractive) seating.
Look for more improvements throughout the year, and if you would like to be a part of it by donating funds and/or time, please contact the Church Office to be put in contact with Dave Lewis (Building Affairs).
Bible Studies Return
Reverend J. Keith Cupples lead interesting and in-depth studies of the Bible with insight, stories, and humor in the mix. The studies resume this Sunday, January 8th at 9am and Noon in Fellowship Hall and repeat weekly. Everyone is welcome!
The bulk of the Holidays have passed, but there are still those in need, not just at Christmas. Please help us help others by bringing food donations for those less fortunate or in challenging circumstances.
