We are now in the Church Season
called "Common Time"

Most of the Seasons of the Christian Church Year are organized around the two major festivals that mark sacred time, Christmas and Easter. The Christmas Season encompasses the time of preparation during Advent and the celebration of the Twelve Days of Christmas and Epiphany in early January (the 6th). The Easter Season encompasses the time of preparation during the 40 weekdays of Lent and Holy Week, and is linked with Pentecost Sunday 50 days later. While there are other individual holy days within the church year, these seasons mark the movement of sacred time within the church calendar. The rest of the year following Epiphany and Pentecost is known as Ordinary Time. Rather than meaning "common" or "mundane," this term comes from the word "ordinal," which simply means counted time (First Sunday after Pentecost, etc.). Counted time after Pentecost begins with Trinity Sunday (the first Sunday after Pentecost) and ends with Christ the King Sunday (last Sunday before the beginning of Advent).

Because Pentecost is the day that God poured out His Holy Spirit on Christ's disciples, the Season after Pentecost is centered on sanctification, the work of the Holy Spirit in the day to day life of the Christian. It focuses on the evangelical mission of the church to the world and its responsibility in carrying out that mission of proclamation. Pentecost is a time of outreach, praise, spiritual renewal, and fellowship. This is reflected in the liturgical color for this season: green, the color of life and growth. Through the gift of faith that comes only from the Holy Spirit, Christians are enabled to trust in Christ and proclaim Him in their daily lives by service to their neighbors.

The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod says this: The Sundays after Pentecost have been given various designations, but one of the most helpful is the phrase the "Time of the Church." This is the time when we focus on the Spirit's on-going work of bestowing Christ's benefits on his people through Word and Sacrament. The great themes of these days include justification, sin and grace, the means of grace, love, obedience, endurance, and hope. The emphasis that builds from Sunday to Sunday is that of growth in God's grace.

Join us: All community residents and visitors are invited to join us for worship and fellowship, as we strengthen our relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ.
