2018 Christ the King Sunday

On Christ the King Sunday (the last Sunday in the Christian Year) we will be celebrating the entirety of the Christian Year in one service. If the Christian Year is new to you, let us give you a quick overview. The Christian Year is a repeating yearlong calendar consisting of six seasons (or movements) that in its fullness tell the entire story of Christ. This Spiritual tradition was developed in the early church and has been passed down through history in the worship of the church. It enjoys biblical foundations, historical staying power, and contemporary relevance. Through celebrating the Christian Year we are enabled to experience the biblical mandate of conforming to Christ. The Christian Year orders our formation with Christ incarnate in his ministry, death, burial, resurrection, and coming again through Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Pentecost. In engaging with the Christian Year we are spiritually formed by recalling and entering into God’s great saving events.
