This week we continue our Faces of our Faith – New Testament Edition by turning our attention to John the Baptist. As a kid I always remember thinking John the Baptist was weird and probably stinky, maybe with some skin issues from that camel hair jacket. Even as an adult, John the Baptist feels a little extreme to me – with his living in the desert and calling people to repent. And yet, he plays a pivotal role in the recognition of Jesus as the Christ – holy and majestic.
Join us as we remember John baptizing Jesus in the River Jordan and explore ways that the least likely people – the weird, over the top ones – can call us from our complacency into a relationship with Christ.
We will share together in a renewal of baptismal vows and pray for our confirmation students as they begin their journey of exploring discipleship, by receiving their Bibles.
- Scripture: Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
- Sermon: “Faces of our Faith: John the Baptist”
Be sure to make plans to stick around following worship for our annual congregational meeting. It has been a joy to prepare for, as I have had the privilege of previewing our year in review.
Stay warm this weekend. Then bundle up and join us for worship,
