♥ THE SEASON AFTER EPIPHANY ♥
We have began a brief season after Epiphany according to our Christian Calendar, and during these few weeks before LENT- which by the way begins on February 17- we are called to stay calm, stay hopeful and stay home as much as we can due to COVID19.
There is no doubt that this will be a different kind of year, and that we will need to continue adapting adapt to this NEW way of doing things even as we receive our vaccines.
Still we urge you to participate in weekly prayer, Bible Study, and Discipleship classes through zoom, messenger and Facebook to remain spiritually strengthen during the weeks to come.
Because God so loved the world that he sent his one and begotten son, so that all who believed in him would not perish but have abundant life.
