Worship Themes

January 5    Church as a healing place  Mark 1:29-29.  We live in times of enormous pressure on people because of the changing economy, loss of status, combating visions as to what direction our nation is going in and the increasing, indirect but profound effects of global climate change.  How can we be a place of healing, a place of grace?  Holy Communion will be celebrated.

January 12:    What does it mean to “Be Church”?  Paul is our greatest teacher about what it means to be in Christian community (the church).  We will base our thinking on Paul’s letter to 1 Corinthians 1:1-9, 12:12-13, 13:1-13.  What does this say to us about what we are to be in the future?  Rev. Montgomery’s last sermon with us.
