During seasons of Epiphany, we will be looking at different moments in his life, starting with the visit of the Magi, then his baptism by John, his calling of the disciples, and his healing ministry. The season ends with three disciples seeing Jesus transformed to Light before their eyes.
As people looked into the face of Jesus, they saw hope, challenges, peace, restoration.
When YOU look into the face of Jesus, what do you see? Compassion, determination, healing?
Join us for the journey of Epiphany to look into the face of Jesus, starting Sunday from January 6th through March 3rd.
In January we will celebrate:
January 6th: Epiphany day, the coming of the Magi. If you want to bear gifts for the child king, why not bring them to church and donate it for our Spring Auction in March?
January 13th We will be installing the WELCA leaders and reflecting on our own baptism.
January 20th We will be dedicating the new Cranberry Hymnals. The silent auction and your contributions have surpassed $1,000 thus far. I donated $90 for hymnals in honor of my children, wife, and mother, part of their Christmas gift. It is a joy to know that for the next 40 years, they will be part of worship here at Faith. You still have time to make your dedications, please do so before January 6th.
In the later part of January, we hope to schedule a paint party to freshen up the Fellowship hall.
Thanks -I want to thank all the people who helped with events of December, the chili, the caroling, the waffles, the decorations, the tamales, the music, the refreshments, the invitations, the readings, the contributions to charities. As our president, Caroline Ogden mentions in her article you have been faithful stewards of the gift of God. She hopes for good push these last couple of weeks to put us over the top for 2018. Part of the reason this Forecaster is out early is to inspire you to do what you can.
A reminder that Caroline, her family and other church volunteers are hosting a tamale dinner @ 4 pm on Christmas Eve; come and invite your friends. The meal is free if you want to donate, the contributions will go to cover the cost of a new hymnal for David Kerr. Bless him and all the musicians who will brighten our service, which starts @ 5 pm.
Grace and peace,
Pastor John Bunge
