January 13, as we also focus in worship upon the Baptism of the Lord, is a good Sunday for all of us to be reminded of and to re-commit ourselves to our baptismal covenant of membership in the Body of Christ and to use our talents for the glory of God and the good of the church. As we ordain Rickie and Anna and install them along with Janet, we thank them for their leadership past, present and future, and all seek to be faithful servants of Christ.
Following worship, lasagna will be provided along with any side dishes you may bring. We will eat and then take down the decorations in the sanctuary and elsewhere in the church building.
Sunday, January 6, 2019, is the celebration of Epiphany, centering upon the arrival of the Wise Men to worship the Christ child and thus conclude the Christmas cycle. In worship we will focus upon this theme and the service will include the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
Please join us and bring your visiting family members and friends for Christmas Eve candlelight Communion on Sunday, December 24, beginning at 5:30 p.m. It’s a service filled with Word and Sacrament, music, light, and redeeming grace as we welcome the birth of the Savior.
