January 5th – At-Home Epiphany Celebration: In the tradition of the Christian church, January 6 is the day of Epiphany, the day we traditionally celebrate the arrival of the magi and the day that celebrates the revelation of Jesus Christ as the Messiah, God-incarnate. In lieu of a gathered in-person celebration this week, we have made available this At-Home Epiphany Celebration pdf with resources for all ages for learning about and reflecting on this liturgical moment. Included in the packet is a variety of liturgical practices, scripture lessons, craft and coloring actives, and spiritual practices and reflections for Epiphany. Hard copies are available in the church office.
