This Sunday is the 7th Sunday after Epiphany. Mercy. Mercy. Mercy. Joseph lives it in Egypt. Jesus preaches it in the gospel. The Spirit guides us into merciful lives with the power of forgiveness to reconcile what is fractured and divided. Such merciful living is the baptismal blessing of having put on Christ. It is the gift of the life-giving Spirit. It is a reflection of God’s glory revealed in Christ. (sundaysandseasons.com) Thank you to our volunteers and worship leaders for setting up for communion, ushering, reading, working in the kitchen, and to Phil Olson for providing special music this Sunday.
The Church Council will be hosting two listening sessions after worship to hear your hopes and desires for future staffing as we prepare for Julie Klock's retirement and hiring her successor. One group will be upstairs with Sunday School parents and the other in the Fireside room.
HAPPENING NOW February Challenge: Have you done something nice for someone lately? Let others know your acts of love and kindness. Grab a paper heart at our Welcome Desk (or near the other entrances) and write down what you did. We will display them and pray over them at the end of the month. How many hearts can we get!?

All attendees must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when entering the venue. Patrons can provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken under medical supervision within the last 72 hours. Full vaccination means 14 days have passed since receiving a second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or a single dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This policy does not apply to children under the age of 5. Physical vaccination card or a photo of the card/uploaded health records on a mobile device [Apple Health, Docket, My Bindle] will be accepted, as will proof of a negative COVID test supervised by a medical professional within the last 72 hours, with ID. Masks are required while in the building. Medical grade or cloth masks must be worn that securely cover the nose and mouth (no bandanas, neck gaiters or face shields). Adequate space should be maintained between audience members not in the same party. When coming to see a concert, please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early to give us a little extra time as we implement this policy. Thank you!
