Welcome To All, especially if you are visiting us today. We are delighted to have you here. Nametags are an outward symbol of radical hospitality.  If you don’t have one, please see an usher or a greeter for assistance.  If you are visiting, we also invite you to fill out a pew card and put it in the plate.

Family Epiphany Service, with Baptisms   Today, at 10 am, join us for a re-imagined staging of the Epiphany play, and we’ll celebrate baptisms.


Pledge Envelopes   are available for pick-up in the hallway at Information Central.  If you opted out of the numbered pledge envelopes, THANK YOU!  And please note, for recordkeeping purposes, you still have a number assigned to your family; it may not be the same number you have always had.  Please update your banking service to reflect your current designation.


2nd Sunday Spotlights   starting next week, January 14 during Coffee Hour, and continuing each month, our Outreach group will be offering a spotlight on their good works.  Next week will be an overview, and subsequent months will showcase a particular ministry.
