Remember Your Baptism
Preacher: Rev. John Hill
On Baptism of the Lord Sunday, we explore the meaning of baptism together. Baptism is one of two sacraments in The United Methodist Church (Holy Communion is the other). It serves to initiate us into the family of faith, celebrate the grace and forgiveness we receive from God, call us into ministry, and affirm God’s claim on us as a child of God. Just as God calls Jesus “Beloved” at his baptism, God calls each and every one of us “Beloved” as well.

Gifts Received and Given
Preacher: Rev. John Hill
On the first Sunday of 2019, we celebrate Epiphany (the arrival of the Magi to visit the young Jesus) and conclude our series from Advent and Christmas called “All Earth Is Waiting.” We reflect on gifts given at Christmas and that feeling of searching for the perfect gift and the sense of relief and connection and love when the recipient enjoys the gift. The greatest gift any of us can give is the gift of our selves, and that is what God offers at Christmas. We are invited to experience the most wonderful gifts of Jesus Christ and the earth with gratitude and to respond with joy and by offering ourselves.
