From the Pastor
The Baptism of Our Lord Dear Children of God whom sojourn with me in this mission field, Happy New Year and a blessed Epiphany, in the name of the Root of Jesse, who the Wise Men from the East, following the star to Bethlehem of Judea, visited and worshiped with gifts. Amen.
As the hen gathers her brood under her wings in times of danger, so shall the Lord God Almighty who hath made it possible for you to see this new year guard you using not only the blood shed in the circumcision of our Lord, but more importantly that of His crucifixion, as a covenant of peace and a fortress to cover you this new year and forevermore.
May this Root of Jesse, Jesse's Lord, repay you always. Amen.
The 2016 Flower Calendar is now in the narthex. It's a perfect way to share and acknowledge an anniversary, birthday, or a special family occasion. The flowers are arranged for by the church office, all you have to do is tell us what you want written in the Sunday bulletin. The cost is $43. The Flower Calendar is located in the narthex on the wall just to the east of the main doors. Please contact Wayne in the church office if you have any questions.
If you have suggestions about things that you'd like to see in the Memorial Messenger, please let the office staff know. We would love to hear from you.
