It's Epiphany again!
…and we brought out our
Last year, WOLD commissioned St. Peter's member Joe Almoney to make an Epiphany Star – and what a beautiful star he made!
The Epiphany Star helps us see different aspects of how Jesus makes his "appearance" (his "epiphany" in the Greek N.T.). The 3 Wise followed the Star and found the infant Jesus – and this is why the Star is a symbol for Epiphany.
When Jesus began His ministry, God became "apparent" to the people through Jesus' works of healing and teaching. And so, a different color candle is put on the Epiphany Star every week to show us something of Christ's presence and how God appears to us in Christ. The candle color is based on the Gospel lesson.
Come and join us for worship – see if you can guess what color the candle will be each week!
note: this year, the Epiphany season is the longest it can ever be (its length depends when Easter is)! This is the year to see WOLD's Epiphany Star in its full glory (glory to God in the highest!)!!
Sunday Worship Time
changes in January to 9:30!!
Beginning in January 2019, WOLD Sunday worship will be at 9:30 a.m.
For many years, WOLD worshipped at 9:30 a.m., but decided last Fall to test how 10:00 a.m. worship felt. After 4 months of the trial period, WOLD members decided to return to the "old" schedule of 9:30 a.m. worship.
As in the past, summer worship -- the Sundays between Memorial Day & Labor Day -- will be at 10:00, while worship during the "school year" will be at 9:30. Thanks to all who gave their feedback on the 10:00 trial time!
