The Epiphany Arts Festival visual arts display will return in all its glory on Epiphany Sunday, January 12 and will run through and be taken down directly after worship service on Sunday, February 23, three days before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Epiphany is also known as Three Kings Day and commemorates the day that the three kings arrived at the birthplace of baby Jesus after having followed the star in the Eastern sky for many days. They showered the infant Jesus with the gifts they had bought, gold and frankincense and myrrh and so we, to honor the occasion and celebrate the season of Epiphany, will showcase the artistic gifts of our church family including but not limited to: photographs, sculpture, paintings, poetry, jewelry, drawings, wood work, pottery, calligraphy, needlework, knitting, and quilting.

To enhance the Epiphany Arts Festival, the church is also hosting a coffee house on Sunday January 26. Church family and friends will share their gifts of music and writing from 3:00 – 5:00 pm in the Northwood Congregational Church fellowship hall.
