Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all still basking in the blessedness of Christmastide. Remember, Christmas lasts 12 days. Some of you need to step up your partying. 🙂 This weekend you’ll get the chance as we welcome in 2023 this Sunday.
Not only is this Sunday, New Year’s day, it’s also the special holy day when we remember the naming of Jesus (8 days after the birth). In that light, I’ll be touching on all three of the lectionary passages this week, as each contributes to our understanding of “naming.” If you’re interested in reading the passages beforehand, you can find them at the end of the online Order of Worship bulletin.
Here are your Announcements for the week ahead:
Potluck Noodle Party
Next week’s potluck is themed around noodles. You can make any kind of noodles you want. Join us on Saturday, January 7th from 1:00 to 3:00 in Darley Hall kitchen.
Communion next week
Don’t forget that we’ll be celebrating communion next Sunday, January 8th. If you’re joining us online, remember to bring your communion elements to the broadcast.

Annual Congregational Meeting
On Sunday, January 15th directly after the morning worship service, we’ll be holding our annual congregational meeting. At the meeting we’ll be approving the 2022 budget, Jason’s Terms of Call, and voting on a slate for two new ruling elders. All are welcome, but only members may vote.
