This week Pastors Rob Sauers and Nathanael Mayhew discuss the reason we follow a “church year” in our worship services. The church year actually has roots in the Old Testament where God gave the nation of Israel a “church year” that they were to follow so that they would keep focused on God and His promises to them. While many churches do not follow a church year, it is a valuable tool to help us study the life and work of Jesus and the effect His redemeption has on us as Christians. We will walk through each of the New Testament seasons of the church year and thier purpose, where they have come from, and why we follow this system, year in and year out. We pray this is a helpful review and reminder of the benefits of following a church year.
