Second Sunday after the Epiphany*
Worship at 8:45am and 10:00am
Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your judgments are like the great deep; you save humans and animals alike, O Lord. How precious is your steadfast love, O God! All people may take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. O continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your salvation to the upright of heart! –Psalm 36:5-10
Rev. Joye Jones will be preaching, “Gifts of All and for All”
Scripture: Psalm 36:5-10; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11
Pray for our world (from the Ecumenical Prayer Cycle ): Cyprus, Greece, Turkey
Human Relations Day: Turn on the news or drive around the outskirts of your town and you will find what Jesus called “the least of these.” Those living in the margins of society, struggling to survive. People like an immigrant teenager in Texas’ poorest county, being recruited by a local gang; a father struggling for sobriety in Little Rock, Arkansas; an Oklahoma woman recently released from incarceration looking for work. Over and over Jesus served people like this, embracing them. And that’s what we want to model as the people of The United Methodist Church. To continue the ministry of Jesus we established Human Relations Day as a Special Sunday that calls all of our churches to participate in helping all God’s children to realize their potential. This Sunday we will collect a special offering to support Human Relations Day. Learn more
