January 17, 2021: “Can Anything Good?”

 

January 17, 2021
In today’s reading, the prophet Nathaniel asks sarcastically, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Surely after what our world witness when a lawless mob of rioters on Jan. 6 participated in an insurrection against our government, resulting in the death of 5 people, we can appreciate the sentiment behind Nathaniel’s question. “Can anything good come out of Nazareth – Washington, DC – this?”

January 10, 2021: “Tearing Apart the Heavens”
January 10, 2021
Today, Epiphany Sunday, marks two events: the visit of the Magi to the baby Jesus, and the baptism of Jesus by his cousin John the Baptist.  Both were announcements of God’s presence in our world.  When we experience the presence of God, the companionship of the Spirit, the friendship of Jesus, we are challenged to continue growing in faith.

Sunday morning worship (in normal times)

Sunday morning Worship Service begins at 10am, with music, worship, prayer, community. After the welcoming time, children are excused to age-appropriate Children’s Church School.

Weekly resources

See this week’s Scripture passages here, at the UMC Discipleship Planning page.

Each week’s Scripture passages are selected using the Revised Common Lectionary. This is the basis for many sermon topics, as well as church school lessons.

The Lectionary has a 3-year cycle, and includes readings from Old Testament, New Testament, and the Gospels. At the end of 3 years, the entire Bible will have been included! The Revised Common Lectionary is ecumenical (used by many Christian churches). See this description for more info.
