Youth Ministry Dancers at Grace United Methodist Church of Los AngelesLITURGICAL SEASON

The season after Pentecost is known as Kingdomtide or Ordinary Times. The focus of the season is on Jesus’ teaching ministry and the kingdom and the reign of God. As Christians, we  share our faith with others, we renew and reaffirm our own faith, and do the Lord’s work in our church, community, and our homes under the power of the Holy Spirit, which lives in us.
Kingdomtide ends before the first Sunday of Advent. The last Sunday is always the Sunday of the Reign of Christ, or “Christ the King.” The season also includes All Saints and Thanksgiving.
 
The liturgical color of Kingdomtide is green to symbolize life and growth in the church as reflected in the symbol below. 

Just because you can’t see him, doesn’t mean he’s not there.
