Epiphany is extra long this year - make it special

Elsa Marshall


This year Lent begins late giving Epiphany NINE Sundays during this church season. Take this time and make it special. This year, in worship and in your classrooms, have Epiphany be festive and filled with special activities, rather than have it feel like the end of Christmas. Epiphany means to make manifest or appearance, and we celebrate during this season, the coming of the Light of God into the world.

Advent is already here!

Elsa Marshall


Advent is already here!  I have dusted off my Advent wreath, bought new candles and I am preparing to begin the celebration of this season. Some members of your church family might be new to this celebration or just aren’t sure what to do and how to celebrate Advent, especially if celebrating with children for the first time. It is appropriate for the church to help families make this a fun and instructive time without entering into the shopper flurry which is the secular celebration.
