Service at 10 AM.
Third Sunday after Epiphany
The Sermon Title: “Wholly Sacrament”
Scriptures: Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 26:26-30, and 1 Corinthians 11:23-34
Jesus instituted two sacraments and commanded the church to observe and practice them. Baptism mirrors circumcision under the old covenant and the Lord's Supper recasts the Passover celebration in a new light. Both serve as outward and visible signs of an inward and invisible grace.
Join with God's people this week in worship!

Hebrews 12:1-2, 20-24, 1 John 1:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 12:7, 3:21-23
Communion is fellowship: fellowship with God, fellowship with other believers here on earth, but also a fellowship with the Church Triumphant, those who have gone to be with the Lord and with whom we will be reunited someday. This is both our present experience and our future hope that God has given us in Christ.
