The Lectionary


The preaching at our church is based upon the Scriptures as laid out in the Common Lectionary, a three year cycle of readings established for each Sunday during the calendar of the Christian Year.  It begins with Advent, then follows the Seasons of Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost.  Readings are drawn from the Psalms, the Old Testament more broadly, the Gospels, and the New Testament more broadly.  At the Common Lectionary is commended to the PCUSA and other denominations in the US and around the world, it provides for a common experience in hearing the Word of God among our churches. 


Beginning with Advent in 2020, we will enter Year B of the Lectionary Cycle.
