Sunday in Worship…

This Sunday, January 17, is the 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany, and Martin Luther King Sunday in the United Church of Christ. The sermon will be entitled “Vision in the Kitchen,” referring to a specific experience in the pastoral life of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. You are invited to google this to learn more about it prior to Sunday. Worship will also include some words from the pastoral life of Martin Luther King.

Our worship will begin at 10:30 am, and our text will be John 1: 43-51, which will be read by Lil Wanzenreid. Our anthem will be from Seventh Day, our worship band. You can find worship online at:

Don’t forget to have your communion ready! Be sure and gather your elements, be they grape juice and bread, coffee and doughnut, or whatever you have in your home. The table Jesus set is so broad and vast that it extends from the Sanctuary to your home and beyond.

The Trustees have made their first draft of 2021 budget. Please – if you have not returned your pledge card yet, please do it now. The work of putting the budget together is significantly more challenging when folks have not returned pledge cards. It is very important that the Trustees have your information.

If you have prayer requests or announcements that need to be made, please email them to the church by 6pm Saturday, 1/16/2021.

Zoom Fellowship Hour will happen right after worship. Andrea has put the information to get to Fellowship Hour elsewhere in this week’s issue of Happenings, and an email with a link will come to you on Sunday morning, too.

As a reminder, the annual Congregational Meeting will be happening on Sunday, January 31, on Zoom. The official call of the meeting from Clerk Debbie Feasel will be read in worship this Sunday.

Thanks and blessings,

Pastor Jason
