This weeks readings:

Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday.

Isaiah 60:1-6

Psalm 72: 1-2; 10-13 

Ephesians 3:1-12

Matthew 2: 1-12

 

 

Matthew 2:1-2

In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage.”  

 
Those who live at the greatest distance from the means of grace often must use the most diligence to learn and to know the most of Christ and his salvation. But no curious arts, or mere human learning, can direct men unto him. We must learn of Christ by attending to the word of God, as a light that shineth in a dark place, and by seeking the teaching of the Holy Spirit. And those in whose hearts the day-star is risen, to give them any thing of the knowledge of Christ, make it their business to worship him

Help needed after service this Sunday.

Emmanuel has come!

The Christmas Season has renewed our spirit and although we want the spirit of Christmas to last year round – the decorations may not.

 

We would appreciate any and all help this Sunday after the service as we take down our Christmas decorations in the Chapel.  There are many small things that need take down, put away, and carried to closets or cars.  If we all pitch in-we hope it will be a quick clean up.  Thank you in advance!
