It is the first Sunday of the New Year! It is Baptism of the Lord Sunday! It is also the first Sunday of the liturgical season known as Epiphany. Epiphany is the season where we explore how the life and teachings of Jesus Christ show him to be the redeemer of the world. This Sunday will have a lot of opportunities for the whole congregation to participate in worship. God is moving among us and is inviting us to join that divine movement. May we open up our hearts to how the Great Creator Spirit is moving among us, with us, and in us. Come let us worship.  

The scriptures this Sunday come from Genesis 1:1-5

True, Igor Glenn has played with musical legends from the New Christy Minstrels to John Denver to Benny Goodman. But with six decades of touring the world as a solo artist or teamed with the likes of Jazz Cowboys, Igor has emerged as a legend in his own right. As a one-man band, Igor's commands musical styles from country to folk to gospel to jazz...well, he embraces genres from A to Z. What's more...what other musicians can claim to charm audiences in China and both versions of "The Gong Show". Then when Igor mixes and matches his musician friends in concert, the musical menu covers tastes from the world over. Don't be surprised if Igor and his family-friends have audiences singing along in the intimate Womack Center.
