Walking with Jesus: Epiphany

Image

The season of Epiphany is all about the journey - it is a time when we get to Walk with Jesus and learn from him how it is to be a disciple.

It is a season of encouragement, wonder and risk taking with one goal: building up the kingdom of God!

As you explore these resources may you grow in love of God and neighbor so that others may see Jesus in your daily walk.
