+ SOLI DEO GLORIA +
EPIPHANY means "manifestation" or "appearance." It is the season which highlights many of the epiphanies of God in human flesh (to the wisemen, at His Baptism, His miracles, His transfiguration.) It is a season which also sets forth Christ as the Light of the World and mission outreach to all peoples. As Christ manifests Himself today in the Lord's Supper, His forgiveness empowers us to Walk in His Light and witness of Him to a world sitting in darkness. Since God's Word teaches that doctrinal unity is central to the common reception of the Lord's Supper, here at Zion-Friedheim we practice closed communion. Guests desiring to commune are asked to speak with the Pastor before the service.
