This year we sang several new hymns in January and will continue with that also in the first half of February. Time after an epiphany in the church calendar is short. The 15 hymns dedicated to that period are worth discovering with their unusual melodies and harmonies in combination with powerful words.
Wednesday worship and gospel of John bible study started on February 8 at 6:30 PM, led by Vicar Kristen. Please consider joining us for these special services as we start preparing our minds and hearts for Lent. Our annual meeting was on February 5, and annual reports are available online and at church. Please keep checking our weekly emails and bulletins for future events and announcements.
Have you thought about singing in the choir, ringing bells, or leading worship as a soloist or cantor? Join us, and let's glorify God in our music! We welcome all; no music-reading or other professional skills are required.
Many thanks to Sanctuary Choir, Betsy Lintel, Laura Haynie, Gwen Sliger, Romali Fernando, Don Roland, Greg and Julia Smith, David Kuhlmann, and Karen Morton for their beautiful musical offerings in January! And Sergio Pena for monitoring our live stream services, and Gary Haschke for sound engineering! God Gets the Glory!
Prayers to all in need: Our church and all other churches, all countries and nations, and people who struggle with conflict and division, people in poverty, those dealing with health issues, and those searching for truth and spirituality and love.
"Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us." (Martin Luther)
See you at church!
