Greetings, CHLC family and friends!

This coming Sunday, January 21, is the Third Sunday after the Epiphany, and we continue to hear stories about Jesus calling disciples as we consider what it means that we are called to follow him as well.

We continue our study of healings and miracles in Mark during the adult Sunday school time in the parlor. Join us from 8:45 to 9:30 to discuss the healing of the paralytic in Mark 2.

Marion Robinette would like to include the congregation as they celebrate the 5th birthday of her grandson, Alan. She will have cake and ice cream in the parlor immediately following worship on Sunday. Come enjoy the treat and wish Alan a happy birthday!

Please pick up your packet of annual reports in the narthex Sunday so you can read over them. Our annual congregational meal and meeting is next Sunday, January 28, and if you have any comments or questions about any of the reports, I encourage you to bring them with you. If you are unable to attend in person, please send me something via email, phone call or post office.

We could use a few hands to help set up for the meal and meeting next Saturday, and to serve and clean-up on Sunday. Check out the signup sheet on the bulletin board in the narthex.

Next Sunday is also the second of our quarterly stewardship emphases based upon the seasons of the year. It is winter, and our theme is sacrifice. As those seeds and bulbs lie dormant under the cold surface of the ground, we await the day when new life will burst forth. God promises new life from death. How will that happen for you?

I will see you in worship,

Pastor
