Happy New Year! As we welcome in the new year and the Christmas season comes to a close we hope you will join us for worship as we celebrate Epiphany this Sunday. Can you hear about the Magi without picturing children (or adults you know) in robes and crowns marching through your church? Sunday we will talk more about who they really were.
It is not too late to sign up for the adult study group, “Unwrapping Our Gifts.” This is well worth your time and commitment. You have so much to offer and you would be a wonderful addition to this group. You might even discover new ways to make your life more meaningful. We hope you will join us.
“Unwrapping Our Gifts” starts January 18th and will be Sundays 11:30-2:30! This exciting adult study group will join your faith to the real world, connecting Sunday morning with the rest of your week and life. We will explore the biblical vision that all Christians (not just the ordained) are Ministers – gifted by God. Through imaginative Bible studies, case studies, guided journaling, story telling and group discussion, we will discover our gifts and strengthen our personal ways of ministering in our workplaces, homes, community, relationships and world. Don’t miss it! Make the 8 week commitment! If you wish to sign up contact Daun Smith or Amanda Swoyer.
*Sunday, Jan 11th – Youth Group Meetings at FUSH (UU) 5:00 – 6:15 Jr. Highs
6:30 – 8:00 Sr. Highs
Call to Annual Meeting – Sunday, January 25th immediately following worship. All Boards, Committees and organizational components (such as LBS, Music etc.) should submit their reports by January 11th so we can post them for people to read prior to the meeting. This will save much time at the meeting as we would not need to read each report at the meeting, just discuss and vote on them. – Dave Hale, Moderator
