What IS the Epiphany Feast?
Epiphany is the celebration of the glory of God revealed in the world. It is a time when we remember the story of the journey of the magi who traveled to see the Christ child and left “by another road” to share the message of God’s love and to be bearers of God’s light to the world.
The EPIPHANY FEAST will include music, dinner and worship. Whoever gets one of the 3 almonds in the cake will become one of the magi. (We also will have a cake for those allergic to nuts.) We will have a brief time of worship with scripture, song, and candle lighting as we remain gathered around the tables. The Epiphany Feast has something that should appeal to all ages. (Most children will enjoy the experience, but we will have someone in the nursery if they prefer to go there after dinner.) Come and add this special holiday tradition to enrich your experience of faith and fellowship.
I hope to see you there!
