All God's Creatures Want to Hear the Choir! On Sunday, in the sanctuary immediately after the service, please stay to help the choir with an experiment. It is likely that where the choir currently sits is not the best for sound and clarity to the congregation and it is not a good position for those of us who have mobility challenges. We're going to move the choir around to a few different places to find out where they sound best in an effort to improve their hymn leadership. We want feedback from absolutely everyone. Where do you think the choir sounds best? Are you concerned about the choir changing position? Do you feel it is a meaningful tradition? You can share your thoughts with Corey after the trial or email her at [email protected].
To say thank-you, the choir will provide yummy treats for coffee hour.
The sermon is: "But Look How Clean Our Nets Are.”
The Scripture Readings for this week, the Third Sunday after the Epiphany are:
936 weeks. That’s the approximate time you have from the moment your child is born until he or she graduates from high school. It goes by fast, and kids change and grow quickly. We know you want to make the most of each phase of your child’s life! To find out how, join us for Parenting Through the Phases, a small group experience for parents. This 6 week course will be spread out, from January to June, on the second Tuesday of the month, starting at 7:30 pm for approximately 1 hour per session. Child care is available each night and babies are welcome.
Your child is changing every week! Just as you begin to figure them out, they shift or move on to a new rhythm, a new habit, and a new opinion. It can make the responsibility to shape a child’s faith and character feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to. Check out the new Parenting Through the Phases Small Group Study launching on Tuesday, January 8th, 7:30 pm.
You’re invited to a new group for parents of children from birth through 12thgrade! The Parenting Through the Phases Small Group study is a small group series that will help you discover what’s changing about your child over the next 52 weeks. We’ll also talk about the 6 things your child needs most, and 4 conversations you’ll want to have with your child starting today! Don’t miss out! Here’s how to sign up: there is no cost to this study, but please let Joni know you are planning to attend, so that enough materials are readily available. ([email protected]). The Christian Education Committee is purchasing a set of the accompanying books, so you will be able to borrow them.
Tuesday, January 8th, 7:30 pm at St. Andrew's! Any questions?
Please talk with Joni.
Corey Linforth, our Director of Music, along with our choirs, instrumentalists and guest musicians have been busy preparing for Sunday's Service. Please join us at 10:00 am.
