In observing the Christian Year, we celebrate the central mystery of our faith: the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Special Days and Seasons of the Christian Year
provides families, worship committee members, Christian educators, and clergy with a concise overview of the cycle of the Christian year and a treasury of information that will stimulate new ideas for worship.
This brief, to-the-point information can be adapted to children's sermons, Sunday school programs, or family worship. Adult Sunday school classes will enjoy learning more about the special days and seasons of the Christian year, too!
We have a variety of Program Calendars
, and Planners
that feature the special days of the Christian Year and their corresponding liturgical colors.
