Sunday 1/15 - Worship at 11am

This Sunday's lessons highlight the call of the Lord. The young prophet Samuel hears the Lord calling in the night but needs help to recognize God's voice. Psalm 139 speaks of a God who knows us intimately: "You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you are acquainted with all my ways" (v2-3). Then the gospel of John gives us a conversation between Jesus and the reluctant disciple Nathaniel.

God calls each of us uniquely into relationship and into the holy mission of transformation. This Sunday we will listen again for the voice of God, with a service of Holy Communion led by Rev. Jack DiMatteo.

Wonderful are your works, O God!
