Question. What is it about very cold temps, snow, and ice and Sunday mornings? I see an unfortunate trend developing…. This Sunday, let’s buck that trend! Let’s gather as fellowship of the Risen Lord anyway. (But please, if it is not safe for you to be out, take care of yourself - - we will be open every Sunday morning in the foreseeable future.)
A meaningful and joyful service is in store for us this week.
- Two young families with infants will be presenting their little ones to receive the Sacrament of Baptism.
- A congregational meeting will occur directly after worship. The meeting will begin at noon and be “to-the-point.” We will vote on a change to our by-laws, elect officers for the class of 2020, and have the first reading of the budget for 2018. We will get through the business as soon as we can, while being fair to those who have questions to raise.
- I know – Steelers play at 1:00. I know. I will do everything I can to make sure all of you get home in time for the kick-off. (I see a Steelers victory. 20 – 6. How about you?)
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL at 9:45 a.m. This really is a provocative and stimulating time to be together! For this Sunday, read the gospel accounts of Jesus’ baptism. (Matthew 3: 13-17, Mark 1: 9-11, Luke 3: 21-22, John 1: 29-34). What do you think is the significance of Jesus’ baptism? Why do you think God asked his Son to be baptized for the forgiveness of sins?
See you Sunday,
