Christ the King Weekend

This weekend is “Christ the King” weekend and the close of the Church Year. It is the last weekend of “Ordinary Time.” Beginning next weekend we enter into the first season of the Church Year: Advent. Advent serves as the beginning of the church calendar (Advent – Christmas – Epiphany, Lent – Easter – Pentecost, and then Ordinary Time).

This naturally leads to the question: “why do we even follow the seasons and celebrations of the church year?” While Jewish celebration revolves around the Exodus from Egypt, the Christian Church year focuses on the life and ministry of Jesus. So as we move through the church calendar, we are presented in an organized way with the opportunity to talk about, reflect upon, and respond to the entire range of faith confessions that lies at the heart of our Christian Faith. 

This is important, not only for the vitality of our whole community, but especially for our children, so they can become aware in the context of community celebration those things that are important to their Faith (Deut. 6:20-25). 


Advent Art Project

Southview is home to many talented and creative minds. This Christmas, we want to share with you the work of several Southview artists. Their pieces will be on display in the Cardo hall throughout the season of Advent. May these beautiful and unique works of art guide you to a deeper meditation in this season of expectancy.
