As the Church proclaims the glory of God through Scripture, we observe an annual cycle of seasons and festivals that invite our congregations to travel with our Lord Jesus Christ through His conception and nativity, His cross and resurrection, His ascension and the pouring out of the Spirit. Through it all, we ponder His teachings and together wait for the fulfillment of His final promise: His glorious Appearing. To help the congregation enter more deeply into the spirit of each of these seasons and days, the following resources are provided.
