Epiphany begins the 12th day after Christmas (January 6).
Epiphany originally celebrated the day Jesus is baptized: His divinity and role on earth are revealed as he comes up out of the water, the Holy Spirit descends on him and the Witness in Heaven says, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.”
At First United Methodist Brenham we begin our celebration of Epiphany on the first Sunday of the New Year (January 5) marking the arrival of the Magi from the East who bring worship and gifts of devotion to the Christ Child, revealing his divinity. We will continue our celebration of Epiphany until the Sunday prior to Ash Wednesday (February 23).
Come celebrate Epiphany with us.
