Liturgical Seasons & Colors

Advent

Advent marks the beginning of the church year as we anticipate, watch, and await the birth of the Christ Child. Purple is used during Advent as during Lent, to symbolize the coming of the King, and the coming of God's Kingdom. 

 

Christmas

Advent culminates with Christmas, the twelve days we celebrate the birth of Christ. We mark the end of Christmas with the Day of Epiphany. Again, we use our white banners. As with Easter, we are marking events in Christ's life that are filled with hope for us. For Christmas and Epiphany, there is hope in the manifestation that Christ is coming for all people.

 

With a better understanding of the liturgical seasons and symbols, the use of color and fabric can enrich the meaning of the time being celebrated. Our worship is enhanced as we better understand the gracious acts of God, and we are better equipped to go out into the world, and into God's kingdom.

 

Lent

Purple is the primary liturgical color of the season of Lent. Purple can be thought of as a color for royalty, symbolizing the coming King, as well as a somber color, reminding us of the approaching events.

 

Easter

Easter is not just one day, but an entire season. It begins with our celebration of the day of resurrection and continues for fifty days to Pentecost. The season of Easter is marked with white, which can symbolize purity, hope, and Resurrection.

 

Pentecost

Easter is not just one day, but an entire season. It begins with our celebration of the day of resurrection of Jesus and continues for fifty days to Pentecost. The season of Easter is marked with the color white, which can symbolize purity, hope and resurrection.

 

 

Ordinary Time (Sundays after Pentecost)

The main liturgical color for Ordinary Time is green, symbolizing spiritual growth and building up of the church. May we find that as a congregation we grow and flourish in much the same way.
