Sunday January 3, 2021
for JANUARY 3, 2021
Out of an abundance of care and caution, the people of Resurrection Lutheran Church, Moose Pass United Methodist Church, and Seward United Methodist Church bring you an online worship experience. It is an act of love to the communities we serve to provide this safe alternative to gathering in person
Today we celebrate The Second Sunday After Christmas. Christmas Day may be behind us but we are still within “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Therefore, the Gospel passage for the day is John’s account of the Incarnation, Jesus’ coming, from John 1:1-18. We’ll have some more Christmas music that didn’t make it into our Christmas Eve service including a new Christmas song as response to the message for the day. Plus we’ll have two special ways to bring in the new year; an invitation to participate in “Star Words” via Zoom after worship and the chance to pray John Wesley’s “Covenant Prayer.” Pastor Ben provides the children’s sermon with some help from the youngest member of their family. And Pastor Jim preaches today.
The service will begin with Gathering Music from Life Church — a contemporary take on “The First Noel.”
You can join the “Star Words” Zoom at 11:30 AM on Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 at the following Zoom Link — https://greaternw.zoom.us/j/97252574525
