Epiphany is a season of the church bookended by two lights:

-The star that guides the wise ones to Jesus’ manger
-The Transfiguration, when Jesus himself shines like a light in front of his disciples.

In this season of light shining into the world, Mount Olivet will be featuring our community partners and our members who work with them.
