Pastor’s Weekly Email Message – January 17, 2016

“A WEDDING BANQUET” — Theme for worship this coming Sunday, January 17. A remarking miracle performed by Jesus – the wedding feast in Cana described by the evangelist in John 2 reveals who God is and what God gives in great abundance.
We will gather around another feast on Sunday – a Feast of Bread and Wine, where there will be an abundance of healing, forgiveness, compassion, joy, community, and energy for mission. These gifts of God overflow from the wine only Jesus can provide.
SPARK SUNDAY SCHOOL begins a new story on January 17, not coincidentally, “The Wedding at Cana.” Children and youth, can come and experience the story, the songs, the games, and the joy of the Bible! Adult Bible Class will meet upstairs – plans are to study the Book of Exodus in coming weeks. Confirmation Class will meet on January 24 out in the Church Office.
