January 23, 2022 | Third Sunday after Epiphany

God's glory is revealed in the reading of scripture. People stand at attention. People weep. People prostrate themselves in prayer. The unity of the church is another reflection of God's glory. Most gloriously, the promises of God are fulfilled in the person of Jesus Christ. Gather round. Listen up. Glimpse the glory of God.

Due to the increase in the Omicron variant of the Covid virus, it has been decided that we pause in-person worship for a few weeks until this variant starts to subside. The Task Force has put a lot of thought and work into searching out many factors and with the local hospitals overflowing with Covid patients and the ease of the spread of the Omicron variant and the safety of our members attending worship at this time, the decision was made and it was not made lightly. The cloth masks that we are wearing in worship are not adequate to stop this variant. So with much concern for our members and much apprehension about this decision it has been decided not to have in person worship this coming Sunday. The hope is that we can continue worship again next Sunday, January 30. The experts are saying that this variant will peak in the next week or so and hopefully that will allow us to resume in-person worship. We will keep you all informed as we move forward. If you know someone who does not have access to the email blasts, please pass this information on to them. Thank you!

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
