Join Evangelical Reformed UCC’s 10:30 AM Worship Service in our Main Sanctuary and online.
Epiphany Sunday | Baptism of Christ Sunday
We trust our belovedness
We began our series by acknowledging our weariness and we conclude with trusting our belovedness; ultimately, our joy is rooted in the fact that we belong to God. In the story of Jesus’ baptism, the heavens part open and the voice of God wraps Jesus in joy and loving care. Some translations of Luke 3:22 read, “in you, I find happiness and delight.” Therefore, we can conclude that we are also the source of God’s joy. When we trust our belovedness, we live and give fully—we are compelled to treat all of creation with tenderness and care. When we trust our belovedness, we have endless reasons to rejoice.
We will be sharing communion at the chancel rail this morning as well as receiving our star words for the coming year. This day, we celebrate Jesus’ baptism and remember the role our baptism has played in our lives. It is a day we also remember that along with Jesus we are beloved by God and empowered to participate in God’s healing work in the world. The Senior Choir will be singing.
ERUCC also holds a healing worship service with Holy Communion at 8:30 AM.
