  • Email from the Pastor - Sunday, January 13
    Hi Church,
    This is an early communication. That's because I will be in the hospital tomorrow. It looks like everything will work out to allow me to have another heart catheterization. I go in at 7 am and the procedure is at 9.
    This Sunday is the first Sunday will focus on the baptism of Jesus. The text is found in Luke 3:15-17, 21-22.
    Don't forget that this Friday is movie night! The movie is "Unbroken: Path to Redemption." It tells the story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympian and World War II hero, as he deals with the horrors of being a prisoner of war.

  • Email from the Pastor - Epiphany Sunday, January 6
    Hi Church,
    This Sunday is called Epiphany Sunday in the Church Year. It commemorates the coming of Jesus to the Gentiles. The gospel, according to this festival, is for everyone! Amen!
    Epiphany also marks the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas. After Sunday the tree, the candles, and all the other decorations will be taken down.
    The text is Matthew 2:1-12, the visit of the Magi or wise men or three kings.
    This Sunday is also provides an opportunity to participate in Holy Communion. Following the worship service we will then retreat to the "Fellowship Hall" for a shared meal. Please, if you are able, bring a dish to share with others.
    Look forward to seeing everyone.
