Check out the “Eco-style Living-Breaking Free from Plastic” table on Sunday, January 19 after the service in the Fellowship Hall. Your Care for Creation team will have a tabletop display of products that are alternatives to many of the plastic items you find in your kitchen, grocery store, health and beauty items, and daily life and eating out.
The office will be closed Monday, January 20, for Martin Luther King Day. The office will be open the following day during regular office hours. Thank you in advance!
We have seven young people participating in the Our Whole Lives grades 4-5 program. They meet after church twice a month and need a little sustenance. Please see the sign-up sheet on the Welcome Center or Rev. Mollie if you are interested in providing a meal for this group.
All are invited to join us after the service at a local restaurant as we eat a good meal and get to know each other better. This month we will be meeting at Olive Garden at Wadsworth & Alameda. Contact Marcia Forney for details or sign up at the Welcome Center.

Matthew 3:1-6, 13-17
When Jesus came to his cousin John to be baptized, John said, “No way! I’m not worthy!” But Jesus wouldn’t take no for an answer. In fact, Jesus reminds John that it is God who names our worth, not ourselves, and not other people. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on Jesus’s baptism and how we are all seen as worthy from God’s perspective.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Congregational Budget Meeting following worship on January 26. Your attendance is important as a quorum is required to approve the 2020 Budget. We will also receive an update on the Endowment, the Ministry Expansion Campaign and vote on the congregation’s level of involvement with Colorado Faith Communities United to End Gun Violence. Child care will be available.
This month, your Communications Committee will be working on replacing all of our name tags we use for Sunday service. If you take your name tag home, please be sure to bring it in so we have a record of your name while we filter through all the ones hanging on the podium. If you have a preferred name or change in name you’d like to see from a previous name tag, please email Allison Booth at email@example.com. We appreciate your patience during this process!
Do you like to clean out other people’s closets? Does organizing spark joy in you? Join a few others on January 23 from 10:00 am-12:00 pm to clean out and organize part of the basement storage and the Stage room closet. Let Rev. Mollie know if you are coming.
We would like to thank Kathy Nielsen and the Nielsen family for paying for the new concrete sidewalks that run from the east parking lot to the main doors. The sidewalk is in honor of Dave Nielsen who passed away last March. This sidewalk is a wonderful tribute to Dave as it will make it much easier for anyone with a walker, wheelchair, or challenges with mobility to get to the church.

There was a time when people were guided by the stars in the sky. They knew where they were and where they were going in relation to the constellations above them. As a church, we are preparing to launch out on a new journey together as we imagine our future. What directions will we go to? How will the spirit lead us? Who shall set the trajectory of our travels? Join us on Epiphany Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the Wise Ones from the East coming to see baby Jesus and how we too can be guided by starlight.
