Opportunities for Fellowship & Service
Fourth Sunday after Epiphany - 11 a.m. Service
Sermon Text: Mark 1:29-39 NRSV
Sermon Title: "The Big Picture"
29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 Now Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. 31 He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

32 That evening, at sunset, they brought to Him all who were sick or possessed with demons. 33 And the whole city was gathered around the door. 34 And He cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, He got up and went out to a deserted place, and there He prayed. 36 And Simon and his companions hunted for Him.
37 When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is searching for you.”
38 He answered, “Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do.” 39 And He went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.
Praise & Worship

Prelude              Adagio by Georg Muffat

Open Jesus in the Morning vs. 1-4
1) Jesus, Jesus, Jesus in the morning
Jesus in the noontime; Jesus,
Jesus, Jesus when the sun goes down!

2) Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him in the morning
Praise Him in the noontime; Praise Him,
Praise Him, Praise Him when the sun goes down!

3) Love Him, Love Him, Love Him in the morning
Love Him in the noontime; Love Him,
Love Him, Love Him when the sun goes down!

4) Serve Him, Serve Him, Service Him in the morning
Serve Him in the noontime; Serve Him,
Serve Him, Serve Him when the sun goes down!

Special Music Here I am to Worship

Closing Is There Anybody Here Who Loves My Jesus? vs. 1, 3-4
Is there anybody here who loves my Jesus?
Anybody here who loves my Lord?
I want to know if you love my Jesus;
I want to know if you love my Lord.

1) This world's a wilderness of woe,
So let us all to glory go.

REFRAIN

3) When I was blind and could not see.
King Jesus brought the light to me.

REFRAIN

4) When ev'ry star refuses to shine,
I know King Jesus will be mine!


Postlude Gigue by Georg Muffat
Please find the prayer list below,
and sincerely pray for ALL of God's creation.

PRAYER HAS DIVINE POWER TO DEMOLISH STRONGHOLDS.

"4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up
against the knowledge of God,
and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
2 Corinthians 10: 4-5

Food items are canned meats and #10 size canned fruits, vegetables & applesauce. Please sit your donations under the shelter, next to FCC's parking lot, at the set of double doors with a mailbox.

Proverbs 19:17
Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord,
and he will reward them for what they have done.

Proverbs 31:8-9
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Crisis Control Ministry
My fellow Christians,

Well, the month of January is drawing to a close. I honestly think January is a year in itself. February is a shorter month and it celebrates Valentine’s Day. We recognize Valentine’s Day by showing love, kindness and appreciation . We automatically think of family and friends and purchase a card or some other remembrance for them. Crisis Control Ministry is requesting INSTANT POTATOES for the month of February.  These are not expensive and they can go a long way in feeding a family. Most grocers have different varieties to choose from. Also, why not go through the “card” aisle and choose a Valentine or two to send to someone who might live alone or someone you know who is having a really hard time just to let them know someone is thinking of them. Buying INSTANT POTATOES for Crisis Control Ministry and sending a simple Valentine card to someone, shows others the love, kindness and appreciation our congregation exhibits every day. The large white box in the Administrative Wing foyer is ready to hold your gifts and I’m sure your ‘heart” will be blessed.
