An introduction to the traditional church calendar; this is a very valuable resource produced by The Village Church in Dallas, Texas. We are grateful for this, and encourage all of our members to be reading it in 2018 & 2019.

The Church Calendar seeks to redeem our time and space through the seasons of Advent, Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Pentecost. Through readings, prayers, songs, fasts and other practices, these seasons reorient our hearts and minds toward the Christian story.
