Wednesday Church Nights for January
January 10 – As we begin the season of Epiphany, we remember that the Holy Family was forced to flee King Herod, becoming refugees in the land of Egypt (Mt. 2: 13-23). So, today, more than 21 million children, women, and men are forced to flee for their lives to escape persecution and violence. We will view the documentary film “Dying to Get In” This film provides an intimate perspective of border crossing and the people who cross.
January 17 – We will continue our conversation about immigrants and refugees with a presentation developed by Episcopal Migration Ministries. The goal is for you “to come away with a deeper understanding of Episcopal Migration Ministries, refugee resettlement, the stories of our new American neighbors, and how God is calling you into this work.” (EMM)
January 24 – Our G.I.F.T. (Growing in Faith Together) night will be games and activities to help all ages learn more about the Bible! “My Bible” is full of many wonderful resources to encourage you to delve deeper into the Bible.
January 31 – Fifth Wednesday Service Project. Check out the website or the Sunday bulletin for further details.
