But he was just born!

This week we are already at the first Passion prediction and the Transfiguration. It is the first Sunday of the month, so we will gather at Christ’s Open Table in celebration. We’ll also collect non-perishable goods, particularly those with protein, for the Sayville Food Pantry, as well as monetary donations for the Deacons’ Fund, used to provide confidential assistance to members in need.

Heads will roll! This week we find Jesus teaching in his hometown, and also hear the final chapter in the story of John the Baptizer. The disciples get the instruction to “shake off the dust” and move on. What does that mean for us as church?

After worship, members and friends will gather to discuss the 3rd Phoenix Affirmation: Christian love of God includes celebrating the God whose Spirit pervades and whose glory is reflected in all of God’s Creation, including the earth and its ecosystems, the sacred and secular, the Christian and non-Christian, the human and non-human.

This Sunday: January 24th

We continue our journey through the Gospel According to Mark. This week, Jesus is in two houses, his own and that of Levi, the tax-collector. A hole is torn in a roof, and Jesus discusses who needs healing, distancing himself from the “righteous.”

After worship, Pastor Gary will briefly present on the 3rd of the Phoenix Affirmations:

“Christian Love of God includes celebrating the God whose Spirit pervades and whose glory is reflected in all of God’s Creation, including the earth and its ecosystems, the sacred and secular, the Christian and non-Christian, the human and non-human.”
