Third Sunday after the Epiphany
This Sunday's gospel relates the beginning of Jesus' ministry according to Matthew's Gospel. After hearing of the arrest of John the Baptist, Jesus begins his public ministry by calling people to repentance "for the kingdom of heaven has come near." Immediately after this proclamation, Matthew tells us a story of the calling of Peter, Andrew, James, and John as Jesus' first disciples. Jesus' call to repentance, tied to the revealing of the kingdom of God, is essentially a call to change the trajectory or priorities of our life, and to journey with God in a new way. Placing the story of the calling of the first disciples immediately after this proclamation emphasizes that this path of change is the path we follow as disciples of Jesus. We'll explore the implications of this for us today in Sunday's sermon.
This Sunday is also the Annual Meeting of the congregation, which will take place over lunch in Trinity Hall following the 10 am service. Child care will be extneded for those who need it, and the meeting will conclude no later than 1 pm.
Godly Play classes for children meet this week during the 10 am service. Children begin the morning in church, and then accompany their teachers to their classes after the first reading. The Nursery is available beginning at 9:15 for our youngest children.
Here are more details about our normal Sunday worship schedule:
Our 8:00 am service is held in the Chapel, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is held in the Church. It includes Communion, Sermon, and a little music. It follows Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer ("thee, thou, thy" language) and is a quieter, more contemplative service.
Our 10:00 am service is held in the Church, and is the one most people attend. It follows a cycle of liturgies or services over each month. The choir sings on most Sundays.
We have a staffed nursery (located in Angus Hall) for infants through age 3. It is open from 9:00 am until the end of the 10:00 am service.
