Season of Epiphany

During February, we are in the season of Epiphany. This is much more than a time to remember the magi who visited Jesus in Bethlehem. This is a season of light as we also remember the Baptism and earthly ministry of our Lord and Savior. We will be focusing on the “Sermon on the Mount” and Jesus’ many teachings. Epiphany lasts until Ash Wednesday (March 1).

Sunday Services begin at 10:00 a.m. Worship is casual, comfortable, and fun! Simply come as you are. We’ll be looking for you!
