Dec. 28 1st Sunday of Christmas Dedication Required Luke 2:21-40
When the poor ones who have nothing share with strangers, when the thirsty water give unto us all, when the wounded in their weakness strengthen others, then we know that God still goes that road with us, then we know that God still goes that road with us. From Cuando El Pobre -A. Oliver and Miguel Manzano
Christ is born. Now what? In our culture new parents receive gifts, but in ancient days they were expected to make a sacrificial offering upon the dedication of their child in gratitude for the gift and for purification. Mary and Joseph brought the offering prescribed for those living in poverty, not those living in comfort or wealth. When they brought the offering, and the child to the temple, they did however receive a gift: the blessing of an old man clinging to a vast hope and the assurance of a prophetess that she would tell the story of redemption promised in this child. In our own fears of not being or having enough, what of ourselves are we called to dedicate to Jesus?

January 4 Healthy Faith Grows! Luke 2:41-52
Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, but it wasn’t always easy for his earthly parents. Does growth always cause discomfort? How do our expectations change our response to growth? What do we do when it becomes uncomfortable, as it was for Mary & Joseph? Join us today and learn what the Bible offers!
January 11 “Baptized” Mark 1:4-11
Even though Jesus was a man unlike any other, he began his public ministry in the way common to his day: by being baptized. Have you been baptized? Is it time to say yes, to this particular invitation of Christ? Come today to learn more. Those who commit to baptism today will be invited to be baptized on January 25.

January 25 “You Are Called! NOW!” Mark 1:14-20
So many of the stories in scripture take place next to water, today we will join Jesus beside the Sea of Galilee as he calls his first Disciples. And hearing the call we will ask what does it mean for us today? What are we called to?
