Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

Hey Everyone,

I hope you’re all well on this sunny Saturday afternoon. As many of you know, I’ve been sick this past week (again), and I’m still not back to a place of health. Consequently, I’ll be joining you via Zoom tomorrow morning to lead the service. This will ensure that I don’t get anyone sick. This also means that we’ll need to move communion to next week, so if you’re joining us via Zoom, there’s no need to bring your communion elements.

We will still be having our first-of-the-month potluck tomorrow directly after the service. Carolyn Nall and Margo Presnall did a lovely job of decorating for the gathering. The theme for February’s potluck is Valentines (naturally). Feel free to bring whatever you want or something in that theme.

Tomorrow morning, I’ll be teaching from the second part of the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5:12-20. You can read that passage and the other lectionary texts in the online Order of Worship bulletin below.

Here are your Announcements for the week:

Intergenerational Study of the Bible for Youth
Given the recent condition of Jason’s health, there will be no Intergenerational Study of the Bible for Youth this week. We’ll return next week as we look at the Israelites’ journey into the Promise Land.  

February Session
This Wednesday, February 8th, the CPC elders will meet for our monthly session meeting at 10:00am in Darley Hall.

Join us for our weekly Bible Study on February 8th at its usual time–5:00-6:30pm in Darley Hall and on Zoom. We’ll finally explore the Apocryphal additions to Daniel: Azariah, Susanna, and Bel and the Dragon.

Men’s Prayer Breakfast
Men’s Prayer Breakfast is happening this week on Thursday, February 2nd at 7:00am.

Communion Next Sunday
Next Sunday, February 12th we’ll celebrate the Eucharist, so if you’re joining us via Zoom, please remember to bring your own bread and juice.  

Cost of Discipleship Lenten Reading Group
This Lenten season, you’re invited to join Jason on Tuesdays (time to be determined) in Darley Hall and on Zoom as we explore The Cost of Discipleship, by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
