Church Year

The cycle of the church year moves through various “seasons” and we use a 3 year series of scripture readings called “The Revised Common Lectionary.”

The church year has a pattern to it and seasons that mark the movement through the year.  The seasons in their order move this way:

Church Year Seasons: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost
From June until the celebration of Christ the King at the end of November, we are in what is called “Ordinary Time” in the church year.  These are Sundays after the Festival of Pentecost.  We are in year C of the three- year revised common lectionary.  The gospel readings come more predominantly from Luke and include several others from the gospel of John.
