Green is the color for the church season of Epiphany. Epiphany begins January 6 and commemorates the Magi following the star to Bethlehem. The color green was chosen to represent a season of spiritual growth and challenge. As the New Year begins, our minds and hearts should be open to receive new learnings and encounters.


Manhattan First will begin 2019 considering, “What Would Jesus Say About...” the current situations we are experiencing. Not surprisingly this worship series will cause us to think deeply, and present points of view which might be challenging and somewhat uncomfortable for us. Welcome to Epiphany!
