Worship for Sunday, January 20, 2021 (Follow 1)

For Sunday, January 10, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “Tearing Apart the Heavens,” based on Mark 1:4-11. The beginning of a new year; and the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. The heavens are torn open at Jesus’ baptism, revealing hope and possibilities like tearing the wrapping paper off a present. How is Jesus calling us to follow this year? This is the first in our series, “Follow Me.”

Pastor Park shares a children’s message and leads us in a remembrance of baptism – have a cup or dish of water ready to dig your finger in. Melissa de Boer shares her call into Stephen Ministry for the God Moment.

Sandy Koster, Ned Laughery, Peg Benz and Kelly Maloney-Wang lead hymns at the 8:30a Classic service. Zoe and Melissa de Boer and Cathy Novy lead music at the 11:00a Praise service.
