The Epiphany Season and St John’s: Bringing Christ Home!

If we have learned anything as a parish family these past two years, it is the importance of maintaining and nurturing our relationships: with each other and with God.  We may not have been able to meet for worship, or fellowship in church, but we have reached out to each other in ways that strengthen our homes in new ways.  We have committed ourselves to bringing Christ home.  This Epiphany season, we continue.

First, we want to encourage everyone to take during January and February to call or send notes to other members in the congregation.  Its time to “catch up” with others, especially during the winter season that often keeps us inside and isolates us anyway.  To help in this, the church office will be printing new directories that include members and friends.  Please pick one up, or ask for one to be sent to you.  Then use, to nurture our relationships one with each other.

Fr David will again be visiting people in their homes this Epiphany season to bless your homes.  He takes special joy in doing this, and though it will once again be done from the driveway or front porch to insure safe practices, it is still a chance to know the presence of Christ being honored in each home of our members. 

Epiphany begins with the special service on January 6th.  This year we will have that service at 12:10 pm, noon hour.  This is to encourage as many people as possible to attend.  No concerns about driving at night!  We will also have a virtual service on either Wednesday night or Thursday.  More information on that later.

Epiphany is a season of following, and giving of ourselves.  St John’s will be offering everyone an opportunity to join the wise men and disciples in bringing Christ into the lives and homes of many in our community who are in need.  First, we will encourage you to give non-perishable foods and other home items to SWEPS through collection drives.  Three times during Epiphany (on Epiphany January 6, January 31st and March 1st Shrove Tuesday), we will invite you to fill the back of our SUV parked in the carport.  Please be generous!

Also in Epiphany, we will be asking for your cash donations to buy new winter coats for children in our community.  We have the opportunity to purchase puff coats for $20 each.  Again, we ask you to be generous in helping bring the warmth of Christ’s love into the lives of area children.

This is what bringing Christ home can look like in a congregation, and a community, even during a pandemic.  Please, pray to do what you can, and help us be a people that finds Christ in the face of each other, and brings Christ into people’s homes and our community!

In Christ,

Fr David

Remember that the relationship we have with God is the model or all our relationships.
As God has guided us into life with Him through the seasons, we can enter into life with one another using the seasons as our framework.
