Poinsettias & Altar Flowers

Special Thanks to everyone who dedicated Poinsettias for our Christmas Services. As we have now officially moved into Epiphany, you can stop by the church and pick them up during our weekday office hours.

If you would like to make a dedication for Altar Flowers in worship in 2021, please also stop by or call the office to arrange those bouquets.

Devotions have Arrived!

After quite a delay in shipping, the quarterly Christ in Our Home daily devotion booklets have arrived at the church. Feel free to stop by and pick up a copy!

This Weekend in Worship

Baptism of Our Lord Sunday
Scripture: Acts 19:1-7, Mark 1:4-11
Preaching: Pr. Steve Knudson
Message: “What God Gives in Baptism”
Synopsis: The readings for today are filled with descriptions of God at work. God breaking the barrier between heaven and earth in baptism, as the heavens are torn to make way for the Spirit. The Spirit of God coming to Jesus, and then coming to the people of Ephesus. Baptism is the means by which God makes specific and real the intentions of God to heal and restore creation. The Spirit of God makes possible the gifts of God needed to carry out God's mission. To be baptized is to be taken up into a mission and purpose of God for the healing of the world.

Worship this weekend will also feature a House Blessing segment to pray for and bless your homes going into the new year.

Sunday Morning Learning

"Ideas for Your Daily Spiritual Practices"
January 3, 10 & 17
The new year is a good time to renew your spiritual life. Join us in this 3-part series as FLC members share books, apps, and other practices they use in daily devotional time. If you want to jump-start a daily practice and haven’t found guides you like, this is for you! If you have a daily devotion time but are looking to invigorate it with new resources, this is for you!

A panel of FLC members will share how they got started with a daily practice, what resources they like to use, and how they structure their time to make it a priority in their lives. If you have resources you’d like to share, please join us!
