January 19 – Epiphany II – Did God really say, “Called me from the womb” (Isaiah 49:1)? Did God really say, “A light for the nations” (Isaiah 49:6) – all ages, appearances, and abilities? He is a God Who speaks, and His every Word gives human lives worth and purpose. Has He not also made our mouths like sharp swords (Isaiah 49:2), proclaiming the glad news of the Lamb whose sacrifice delivers (Psalm 40:9) from any surrender to death?

Thank you to the Youth Leaders, Cherie Figge, Michelle Herrman and Randee Abitz and the youth for serving the baked potato bar and dessert lunch at the Voters’ meeting last Sunday.

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.

January 19 "Unforgettable" Guest Speaker: Dr. Dean Nadasdy
New Series - We might forget names and faces, dates and places, but God remembers those who are His through faith in Christ. To God, they are unforgettable. Dr. Dean Nadasdy says, as we remember Jesus in faith, even more so does God remember us. (Genesis 40:1-23)
January 26 "Call it a Comeback" Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
New Series - "In Christ, God is
writing a comeback story for you. But we don't call it a comeback if it's the same old you that's been here for years. You call it a comeback because life in Jesus means the death of the old you, and through faith in Jesus the real you can truly live."
(Genesis 41)
