The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship (from Psalm 111)

How amazing are the deeds of the Lord! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. His righteousness never fails. He causes us to remember his wonderful works. How gracious and merciful is our Lord! All he does is just and good, and all his commandments are trustworthy. They are forever true, to be obeyed faithfully and with integrity.

He has paid a full ransom for his people. He has guaranteed his covenant with them forever. What a holy, awe-inspiring name he has! Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Let us praise him now and always!

Scripture Reading




1 Thessalonians 5:12-28  (New Revised Standard Version)

12 But we appeal to you, brothers and sisters, to respect those who labor among you, and have charge of you in the Lord and admonish you; 13 esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. 14 And we urge you, beloved, to admonish the idlers, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with all of them. 15 See that none of you repays evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to all. 

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise the words of prophets, 21 but test everything; hold fast to what is good; 22 abstain from every form of evil.

23 May the God of peace himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept sound and blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do this.

25 Beloved, pray for us.

26 Greet all the brothers and sisters with a holy kiss. 27 I solemnly command you by the Lord that this letter be read to all of them.

28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

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
 
Marilyn Davis  (September 29, 1930 - January 11, 2021)


Our dear friend and sister in Christ Marilyn Davis went home to be with Jesus on Monday, January 11th.  She died peacefully at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Duane and Keri Davis, in Georgetown, where she had been living.  Obituary  Along with the obituary on the website is a beautiful 13-minute video celebration of her life.

A memorial service is planned for this Saturday, January 30th at 10:00 a.m. It will be a family-only, in-person service in Georgetown, but will be live-streamed from the Ramsey Funeral Home (ramseyfuneral.com). 

The photo here was taken on her 90th birthday--September 29, 2020. Her special day included lots of precious family time, birthday cards, and a special driveway "Happy Birthday" serenade by RRCC friends.  To send letters to Marilyn's family, here is the address: 

Duane & Keri Davis, 1102 Parkway St., Georgetown, TX 78628
