The Celebrations Directory is designed to have Small Group Ministry/Covenant Group materials available throughout the year, and for special occasions.

For accessibility, the Celebrations Directory can be sorted similarly to the general Directory, such as title, source, topic. In the Celebrations Directory, the Topic indicated the Celebration. Please refer to the Celebration Description table that gives information about:

Time when the celebration occurs, from specific dates to ranges of time (Easter) or variations throughout the year.
The origin or source of the Celebration
Notations related to the arrangement of the material or the specific Celebration.

Sessions will be added as received. New Celebrations (Flower Communion, Water Ceremony, ceremonies from other religions, for example) will be added to the Celebrations Description.
