This Sunday we return to Matthew’s gospel to hear about the call of Jesus’ first disciples. In response to Jesus’ invitation, Peter, Andrew, James, and John left behind their livelihood as fishermen to follow Jesus and “fish for people”. We’ll ponder together how we respond to Jesus’ call continue to follow him through every twist and turn of our lives. Following the service, we will meet to discuss our past year of ministry together, adopt a budget and hold elections for congregational leaders, and dream about the year ahead. Join us for worship at 9:00, with our annual congregational meeting to follow.
Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:00a.m.
Worship begins at 10:00a.m.

Time after Epiphany (Tuesday, January 6, 2020 – Tuesday, February 25, 2020)
January 6 is celebrated throughout the world as the Epiphany of Our Lord. Our English word “Epiphany” comes from a Greek word meaning “shining forth” or “manifestation”, and refers to the arrival of the Magi at the home of the infant Jesus, an event by which God’s glory was made known to “the nations”. During the weeks that follow, the church reflects on what it means to live as disciples of Jesus in light of God’s revelation to the whole world. The time after Epiphany varies in length from year to year, and runs from January 6 until the beginning of Lent, celebrated on Ash Wednesday. This time of growth is signified in the church by the use of the color green.
