The season of Pentecost is the longest season in the Christian year, beginning on the Festival Day of Pentecost. Throughout the season, we focus on the work of the Holy Spirit, the Apostles, the saints and other ancestors in the faith, the life of the church and Christian living.
The season of Epiphany (beginning January 6) celebrates the revelation of Christ to all nations, Jesus' baptism in the River Jordan, and Christ as the light of the world. The season ends the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.
One of the shortest seasons in the Christian year, Christmastide bridges the calendar years of 2016 and 2017. We celebrate the birth of God's promised Messiah from Nativity (Christmas Eve/Christmas Day) to Epiphany in January.
