Deacon(s) On Call:

Our deacon team is beginning a new service to the congregation.
While we have ongoing deacon assignments for our senior citizens and those
with special needs, this “on call” service is available to the whole congregation.

Consider this as a supplement and support to the pastoral care that our Pastor provides.
If you have a crisis, or compelling need, know that one of the deacons will be on call.

  • January 20th -- "Saving the Good Stuff" Worship Theme: The first of Jesus’ signs in the gospel of John is a bit of an enigma.  It is easy to remember, but challenging to understand.  Why water to wine?  Why this story remembered?  Why have Jesus’ work revealed in this way? Scripture texts: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11; John 2:1-11

  • January 27th -- "What Part of The Body are you?" <Consecration of Congregational Leadership> Worship Theme: In the Apostle Paul’s description of the Church as a “body”, he provokes our consideration about where we fit, and the role we each have to play.  While we know far more today about the intricate workings of our own bodies, his testimony holds.  We belong.  We matter.  We need each other to be what we are called to be. Scripture Texts:  1 Corinthians 12:12-31a; Luke 4:14-21
