for 
January 2019
All worship services are Sunday at 9:30 a.m. 
 
 
Jan 06th     "Big Surprise Visitors"     Matthew 2:1-12
 
This year January 6th falls on the first Sunday of the month and so the gifts of the Magi merge with the gift of Christ's life as we celebrate Holy Communion together.  
 
Jan 13th     "Out of the Water and Into the Light"     Luke 3:15-20
 
We have the baptism of Jesus with a voice coming from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased." Talk about some great affirmation! There will be an opportunity to reaffirm our own faith at the end of the service.  
 
Jan 20th     "First Steps"     John 2:1-11
 
We look at the marriage of Cana of Galilee.  Jesus gathers disciples and is training them up before they go out to share the Good News. They are invited to a wedding of one who is probably a family member when problems arise and Mother Mary calls on Jesus for solutions. So Jesus' first miracle was a simple act to save a poor family from embarrassment.
 
Jan 27th    "UMW Sunday"     Jesus' First Sermon in Nazareth
 
The ladies will be leading our worship on this last Sunday of January. Dr. Theresa Ellis will be preaching on Jesus' first sermon back in his own village of Nazareth.  He proclaims that the Spirit of the Lord is active and the congregation is impressed, until he starts to explain what that means.   
 
DVD recordings of each Sunday service are available the following Tuesday through our church office. If you would like a copy, please call Judy in the church office at (951) 679-1016.
