Welcome to St. Michael's Episcopal Church, a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee! We invite you to join us in worship, fellowship, and ministry as we proclaim the Gospel and show God's love to all people.
The Season of Pentecost (May 29 - Nov 30)
In our Christian tradition, we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost on the fiftieth day after Easter. Pentecost commemorates the time when God poured out the Holy Spirit upon the world, and we celebrate it using the symbol of fire and the color red.
The rest of the season following Pentecost is known as Ordinary Time, derived from the word "ordinal," which simply means counted time. During Ordinary Time, which continues until Advent (four Sundays before Christmas), the color green is used, reflective of a time for growth for individuals and the church. The readings and lessons selected for these Sundays focus on various aspects of our faith, with a special emphasis on the mission of the church in the world.
