SEASONS OF THE CHURCH YEAR
The Church Year is divided into Festivals beginning with Christmas, which includes 4 Sundays in Advent and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This is followed by Epiphany Season which begins with the Epiphany of Our Lord and ends 9 Sundays later with the Transfiguration of Our Lord. The Time of Easter follows beginning with Lent, followed by Holy Week starting with Palm Sunday and concludes with Good Friday. Easter Season begins with the Resurrection of Our Lord and includes the Ascension of Our Lord and ends with Pentecost.
The first Pentecost took place on the 50th day after Easter Sunday when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, enabling them to testify boldly to spread the Good News of the Gospel.
We are now in the season of Lent which begins with Ash Wednesday and concludes before Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, which includes Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

SERMON TEXT for MAR 12
Romans 5: 1-8 (NIV)
Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Sermon Theme: DO YOU HAVE TO BE HAPPY?
