First Connection

The purpose of the Season after Epiphany is to help the whole congregation get ready to accompany candidates preparing for baptism.

The first Sunday focuses on the Baptism of Christ and the last Sunday on the Transfiguration. These “bookend Sundays” frame the whole of Jesus’ journey in ministry.  We start at the very beginning of Jesus’ ministry at his baptism and conclude with a glimpse of its fulfillment in the age to come in his Transfiguration. As it frames Jesus’ journey in ministry, so it also frames the journey of his disciples, then and now.The scripture readings in the lectionary provide two distinct pathways of focus for this season.

One pathway helps the church to focus outward to inviting others to "Come and see." The other helps congregations to work together on its inward life. Both pathways, supported by scripture, help the church in its mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Please remember: if you choose to attend an in-person worship service masks are highly recommended and social distancing between family units will be expected. Direct contact with people and objects are discouraged, but hand sanitizer will be available. If you or any of your family have any COVID symptoms or are in quarantine, please refrain from exposing other worshippers.
