~This Week in Worship~


This week’s quote comes from poet Rainer Maria Rilke: “If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small things hardly noticeable, those things can unexpectedly become great and immeasurable.” Questions for reflection: What small things around me do I notice? What do I need to pay more attention to? Where is God today? Do I look for God in unexpected places?


This week we begin a new sermon series, “Following Jesus: Who Is this Man?.” Pastor Rachel will preach a sermon, entitled “We Now Interrupt Our Regular Programming…,” based on John 3:1-10. Claudia Anderson will be our Lay Reader, and Julie Sorcek is the Deacon of the Day. Tina Heidrich and the Sanctuary Choir will offer our musical selections, and Ashley Adam will offer the Children’s Message.

January 22: “Following Jesus: The Storyteller,” based on
Matthew 13:1-23

January 29: “Following Jesus: “The Healer,” based on
Matthew 15:21-28
