Home Worship – Sunday January 24, 2021

This Sunday, January 24, we start our exploration of the ministry of Jesus with his journey into the wilderness to pray, fast and face down temptation. The theme for this Sunday is “Jesus is Fed by God’s Word.”

    • Worship for Sunday January 31, will be a Zoom Communion Service, so be sure to get some bread and juice when you’re out shopping this week. The service will be led by Rev. Dr. Dong-Ha Kim, as Rev. John Read will be leading online worship with The South Gate Presbyterian Church.
    • 2021 Annual Meeting: Due to the ongoing pandemic, Session and the Board of Managers have decided to postpone the Annual Meeting until April. This will give us more time to assess the financial picture for the coming year and to make preparations for holding the meeting virtually by Zoom video conference and telephone.
    • Thank You to all our Volunteers: As the Annual meeting will be delayed, we want to take time now to thank all of our volunteers in 2020. Thank you to the Session and Board of Managers who have continued to meet virtually and serve throughout this challenging year. Thank you to all of you who have continued to serve on our ministry teams (Pastoral Care, Mission, Christian Education, Worship & Stewardship) and behind the scenes in other ways. Special thanks to Barb who has organized volunteer cleaning, and to Jen for organizing our virtual ministry to children and families.
