Season of Epiphany

This Sunday, 24 January 2021, is the third Sunday after Epiphany. As we continue through the time after Epiphany, stories of the call to discipleship show us the implications of our baptismal calling to show Christ to the world. Jesus begins proclaiming the good news and calling people to repentance right after John the Baptist is arrested for preaching in a similar way. Knowing that John was later executed, we see at the very outset the cost of discipleship. Still, the two sets of brothers leave everything they have known and worked for all their lives to follow Jesus and fish for people.

Our worship service this week will be pre-recorded in order to take advantage of the ELCIC Bishops’ Epiphany sermon series. the worship service will be available on our Facebook page as well as on our You Tube channel.
