Announcements

Sunday, January 10th, the Third Sunday after Christmas

Pastor Matt's sermon "Beginnings" is based on Mark 1:4-11 with an additional reading from Genesis 1:1-5. As Jesus is baptized by John, a voice from the heavens announces, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased." Hearing God's proclamation in this way is reminiscent of the Word that called the heavens and the earth into existence. Both passages announce new beginnings, and for us they signal hope for renewal and restoration. We reflect on Jesus' baptism, the creative and redeeming power of God's Word, and our place in God's plan for a new beginning for humanity.

Reopening Update
Due to fluctuations in case counts and the possibility of holiday-related spikes, Session has opted to keep the church building closed to in-person services. Session will revisit the matter at its January 18 meeting. In the meantime, Session has formed a task force to generate ideas for maintaining our connectivity and supporting our socially isolated members through this winter season.
