Epiphany

sharing_9837cEpiphany falls on January 6th each year. Epiphany means “manifestation.” On this day we celebrate the revelation of Christ to the Gentiles—that is, to all nations.

Some Christian traditions celebrate three great epiphanies on this day: the magi’s adoration of the Christ child, Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River, and his first miracle, in which he changes water into wine. The word and sacraments are for us the great epiphany of God’s grace and mercy. We go forth to witness to the light that shines brightly in our midst.

Christ the King holds an Epiphany worship service with Holy Communion each year. Because January 6th, 2018 is on a Saturday, the Epiphany worship service will be held at 5:30 PM, the usual time for Saturday worship.
