Sunday, February 1
Over and over in the Torah, throughout the whole Bible, really, an ethical imperative is sounded. We are to care for “resident aliens” – immigrants – because, we were aliens in the land of Egypt. And we are to care for widows and the poor. As we prepare for the VocalPoint concert weekend, Rev. Colby will preach on the biblical underpinnings of our pursuit of human rights. Ars Nova, our resident brass quintet, will play.
Sunday, February 8
VocalPoint Sunday! The concert is in the afternoon but worship will get our heads and hearts ready to experience the possibilities that the concert offers. Rev. Colby will preach on “Red Letter Words,” looking at Jesus’ shocking words (“I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was in prison and you visited me”) that conclude with him saying, “Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me” (Matthew 25:40). Joe Trucano will be our organist this morning.
Sunday, February 15
On this Transfiguration Sunday, we will celebrate the baptism of Shaylynn Blue, daughter of Stephanie Getschmann and Andrew Blue. Rev. Colby will preach on “Mountaintop Moments and Deep Valleys.”
Wednesday, February 18
The season of Lent begins with our observance of Ash Wednesday. We will have two services in our sanctuary, both following simple healthy meals:
At 12:30 p.m. our midweek service will expand to 30 minutes at a time convenient for those who work or live downtown or who eat at our Wednesday Community lunch.
At 7:30 p.m. We will host a simple bread and soup dinner in the Dining Room, and then our evening worship service, featuring communion and the imposition of ashes.
Sunday, February 22
The season of Lent begins as we remember the story of Jesus going from his baptism into the wilderness for a time of temptation. Rev. Colby will preach and we will celebrate communion.
