We are continuing our 2017-2018 Sunday evening Bible Studies from 4:30-6 p.m. This week's location is at the home of Don and Sheltina Hart. We will be reading through the stories of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Be sure to bring your Bibles.
The church will host a memorial service for Ann Holt on Saturday, January 27th at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. A fellowship with light refreshments will follow the service so we can visit with one another and with Ann’s family from Princeton, Kentucky. All are welcome to attend.
This Sunday we will consider how we hear and respond the call of God. As we contemplate the calling stories of both Samuel and the disciples we will find that the divine invitation often comes in strangely ordinary experiences. The call of God may lead us through rush-hour traffic, lengthy checkout lines and heaps of paperwork, but even in the midst of these mundanities, God brings new life and possibilities. Join us as we ruminate on God's work in our lives as we move into a new year.
This Sunday we continue our celebration of the Light. In this season of long nights and short days, we cherish the brightness of the saving work of God, brought forth as a baby in the humblest of circumstances. As we remember the seekers who journeyed from far off to bring their welcome to the Christ child, we remember that the gift of God was not only for us but for the whole world. May we learn from these seekers to open our eyes to the redeeming work of God in the world around us, so that we might also carry the light. This sermon is by Rev. Crystal Shepherd.
An informal worship service of Christmas joy greets us this Sunday December 31st at 11 a.m. We will sing our favorite Christmas carols, offer prayer suggestions for 2018 and enjoy those brave enough to be adorned with their favorite and/or tackiest Christmas sweaters. Please remember we there will not be Sunday school for either children or youth this Sunday.
This prayer, written by Rev. Crystal Shepherd and offered during our Service of Hope & Healing, invites us to remember the suffering in the world around us while remembering that God is always near, bringing hope and light.
The group will continue their ongoing project of filling bags for the Backpack Program which provides food for the weekend for students at local schools. For more information, please contact Pat Ingram at firstname.lastname@example.org.
