WHAT IS ADVENT?
Advent, meaning COMING, (four Sundays before Christmas day) is the season where we prepare for Christmas day celebrating the coming of the Messiah Child who is Jesus. Purple is the liturgical color for this season recalling the majesty of our King who was born in a manger (a food trough carved into the rock) in a cave used to house animals in the Middle East in the way a wooden stable and trough worked in Europe in later centuries. See more in the book of Luke chapters 1:26 - 2:40.

WHAT IS LENT, AND ASH WEDNESDAY?
The first day of the Lenten season, Ash Wednesday, gets its name from the custom of marking the foreheads of worshippers with ashes that have been previously blessed. In the Old Testament, ashes were a sign of mourning and of penitence, and in the season of Lent, the ashes remind us of our need to mourn our sin, and of our great need for Gods grace and for the cross. Lent marks the end of the Epiphany Season. Lents highlights include Ash Wednesday, and Holy Week beginning with Palm Sunday when we celebrate the Triumphant Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem declaring that He is the Messiah, Maunday Thursday when we celebrate The Lords Supper (Passover), Good Friday when we mark His death on the cross, and culminates in Resurrection Sunday, when we worship the only Risen Lord, Jesus!

PASSOVER SEDER WORSHIP SERVICE
Maundy-Thursday evening we celebrate with a special Worship Service called a Seder (SAY- dur) dinner which commemorates Passover (the Israelites freed from slavery in Egypt and spared from the tenth plague when the angel of death passed over the homes of the faithful- Jesus transformed it into the Lords Supper). The service is a sit-down dinner of roasted lamb, bitter herbs, unleavened bread, and the juice of the vine and it begins at sundown with the blowing of silver horns.
The Seder Invitation: can be downloaded, printed or emailed to your friends and family.

WHAT IS PENTECOST?
Sunday, 04 June, 2017
Pentecost means 50th day and is when Christians celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the 120 followers in the upper room 50 days after the Resurrection of Jesus (or the seventh sunday after Resurrection Sunday). Red is the liturgical color for this day recalling the tongues of flame in which the Holy Spirit descended. Pentecost occured during the Feast of Weeks (aka Feast of Harvest, and Day of First Fruits) one of the three commanded feasts by God. See more in the book of Acts chapter 2.
The Pentecost offering is taken on Pentecost Sunday. This Presbyterian Church-USA offering began in 1989 as an offering to help children at risk, youth and young adults. Our congregation will keep 40% of this offering to help children in our community; the remainder goes to the national office and is divided between youth and young adult ministries. Show your support by wearing red to church on Pentecost Sunday.
