The sacred "yes" to the divine calling. Mary's faithfulness is one that we can lift up and learn from.
It is a beautiful truth that God continues to speak to us - in the form of angels, other 'messengers', or perhaps Creation (have you heard God speaking through the sunset?) - and invite us to go, do, and become. What is God calling to you? What will your response be?
What is God calling unto the church? What will our response be?
Let us pray for ears to hear,
and the courage and faithfulness to respond.
"This year let Christmas stay. As December melts into January and a new year begins,' keep Christmas'. Let the Christ of Christmas make every day a little happier, a little brighter, a little bigger. Make' life' the special occasion, not just December 25th. Keep Christmas this year - all year." - anonymous
Happy New Year to all!
The Annual Meeting will occur on Sunday, January 17th following Worship Service. All Annual Reports are due in the office no later than Sunday, January 10th.
In the new year, we would like to consider making a couple of scheduling adjustments, one of which is the delivery of the E-letter. We are considering delivering the weekly E-letter on Thursdays instead of Wednesdays. This would allow for more accurate information and a wider window of time to insert necessary announcements for the upcoming weekend. Would this schedule work for you?
UN-HANGING OF THE GREENS
This Sunday after worship, you are invited to stay after fellowship to help remove and put away the festive greenery that has adorned our sanctuary for Advent and Christmas, and prepare the sanctuary for Epiphany. If you are good at boxing, carrying, or especially climbing ladders, please stick around to help.
BOOK STUDY AND B&B TO RESUME
Bible and Bagels and the Book Study (Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People) will resume January 6th. See you then!
