The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship (from Psalms 100 and 105)

Enter God's gates with thanksgiving, and God's courts with praise. Give thanks to God, bless God's name. You are truly good, O God. Your steadfast love endures forever, and your faithfulness extends to all generations. 

O give thanks to the Lord, call on God's name, make known God's deeds among the peoples. Sing to the Holy One, sing praises to our Sovereign; tell of all God's wonderful works. Glory in God's holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. We worship him today!

Scripture Reading




John 14:15-23  (New Revised Standard Version)

15 "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. 17 This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.


 

18 "I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. 19 In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. 20 On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 


 

21 They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them." 22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?" 


 

23 Jesus answered him, "Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Change

In an effort to streamline, simplify, and make COVID-19 vaccinations more efficient, Texas is transitioning away from having people go to their local PCP, clinic, or hospital to get their shot. Instead, vaccination "hubs" are being established across the state. You must pre-register before scheduling your vaccination time. This pre-registration gets you into their system and helps them to put you into the correct "Phase" for vaccination priority. 

Here is the link to pre-register and be put on a waitlist through Austin Public Health: 

Family Hospital Systems is also putting together a waitlist to receive the COVID-19 vaccine:

You may be wondering whether you are eligible now to receive your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Most of our congregation members are in fact eligible right now, based on age and/or chronic medical condition. Many of our members have now received the first dose of the vaccine, and some have even received both. Praise be to God! 
If you are a front-line healthcare worker or resident of a long-term care facility, you are eligible now to receive the vaccine, since December 14. This group is considered Phase 1A.
If you are in Phase 1B, you are also eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine, depending on availability and the vaccine provider. Vaccine supply remains limited, but more vaccine will be delivered to providers each week. Phase 1B recipients include:
  • People 65 years of age and older
  • People 16 years of age and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19, such as but not limited to:
    • Cancer
    • Chronic kidney disease
    • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
    • Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
    • Solid organ transplantation
    • Obesity and severe obesity (body mass index of 30 kg/m2 or higher)
    • Pregnancy
    • Sickle cell disease
    • Type 2 diabetes mellitus
