Welcome to worship today! On this Second Sunday of Epiphany, we hear Jesus invite disciples of every time and place, “Follow Me.” Philip also invites us to “Come and See.” We gather to see Jesus and the love of God reveal to and through us. This love makes a difference! Today’s service includes the celebration of Holy Communion. If you would like to participate, we encourage you to have bread and wine (or something similar) ready. God bless you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDbhSt58zdQ
The Women of the ELCA (WELCA) is an active organization within our church that supports women to act bodly in their faith in Jesus Christ.

They also participate with other women on the synodical and national levels in mission projects, meetings, workshops, and gatherings. You can find out more about the national WELCA organization here: https://www.womenoftheelca.org/ Our Southwest Synod WELCA group publishes a newsletter called the “Swatch.” You can read the current newsletter below. 2021_01_Swatch_Final
Welcome to worship on this Sunday morning! Remember your baptism! That’s the theme today. We live in a place with an abundance of opportunities to feel God’s presence everyday with this sacramental gift- ordinary things infused with the divine. Today we learn that Jesus baptizes the water. It becomes Sacred, God’s grace poured out for us, and over us. Enjoy the music, have your communion elements ready as we share in the Lord’s Supper, and remember, you are God’s forgiven beloved children. And, God is well-pleased. It’s a great day to give thanks for that, even in the midst of our country’s tumultuous start of 2021 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sZ7clnMKhA&feature=youtu.be
