Presbyterians celebrate Epiphany with lessons and carols

| January 2, 2019

COSHOCTON – The Presbyterian Church, North Fourth and Chestnut Streets, Coshocton, will observe Epiphany on Sunday, Jan. 6. The 10:30 a.m. worship will center on readings from Scripture and carols and anthems for Epiphany, including “We Three Kings of Orient Are.” Musical leadership will be provided by the Chancel and Crusaders Choirs; Westminster Ringers; Alice M. Hoover, organist; and Ann A. Leppla and Dickie R. Barrick, piano. The Reverend Christopher P. Stewart will be the liturgist.

Epiphany, one of the oldest Christian feasts, was celebrated since the end of the second century, before the Dec. 25 Christmas holiday was set. It means “manifestation” and remembers the visit of the magi to see the infant Jesus, the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist, and Jesus changing water into wine at the wedding in Cana. Some Orthodox Christians, as well as the Amish, celebrate “Old Christmas” on Jan. 6.

All are invited to join in this worship celebration.  Preschool childcare will be provided and ample parking is available.
