Happy New Year! This Sunday, January 7, is Epiphany Sunday. We’ll be celebrating by distributing Star Gift Words in worship. Everyone is given a word and is asked to reflect on that word for the coming year. The people are invited to ponder what significance this word might have in their lives, and how God might be speaking to them through that simple message. What will your word be for 2018? Come and see.

On the Day of Pentecost we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit descending in a mighty rush of wind and flame to inspire the church’s proclamation of Christ’s rising and to empower its mission and ministry to the world. We wear red to worship on Pentecost Sunday as a symbol of the flame at the birth of the church.
We will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
