Third Sunday after EPIPHANY: Now is the Time

 
The three C’s – crisis, confidence, and commitment. These are at least three of the ingredients that make today the right time for a change of hearts and lives, believing and trusting God is at work right here, right now. We are invited to come, follow, and participate in building God’s kin-dom.

First Sunday after EPIPHANY: Baptism of the Lord

 
Do you remember your Baptism? I’ve asked that question of many people during my time in ministry. It is always interesting to hear the response. That’s what we do, as humans, tell our stories so we remember… our lives, our history, our lessons, our God.
 
Join in worship to remember and give thanks for Baptism and reaffirm the call to shine Light in the world May your heart be filled with wonder as we center, sing, proclaim and pray.
