Looking Ahead to February 1, 2009 -- 4th Sunday After Epiphany, Annual Meeting Sunday

Following our worship this Sunday all are invited (and encouraged) to stay for our Annual Congregational Meeting.

The Scripture Readings this week are:
  • Isaiah 40:21-31
  • Psalm 147:1-11 (VU p.869 Part 1)
  • Mark 1:29-39
The Hymns this week are:
  • 221 Sing Praise to God
  • 579 The Church is Wherever God's People
  • 79 Arise, Your Light is Come
  • 424 May the God of Hope Go with Us
The Sermon Title is Ready for the Eagle’s Wings?

Early Thoughts: Sometimes we all feel faint. Sometimes exhaustion seems right around the bend. We could stand being lifted up on wings as of eagles.

On this Sunday when we celebrate the ministry of our congregation it is worth reminding ourselves where our strength and energy come from. Isaiah reminds us that when we rely on and trust in God we will renew our strength.

As we look forward to a new year of ministering together may we rise up as on wings of eagles. May we run and not grow weary.
