4th Sunday After Epiphany: Worship at 8:00 am 10:30 am

Icon1 Color 012

The Gospel for this Sunday:

Matthew 5:1-12


Who are the blessed ones of God? For Micah, they are those who do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. For Paul, they are the ones who find wisdom in the weakness of the cross. For Jesus, they are the poor, the meek, the merciful, the pure in heart, the peacemakers, those who mourn, and those who hunger for righteousness. In baptism we find our blessed identity and calling in this counter-cultural way of living and serving.

Please place ONLY STYROFOAM in the containers noted for Styrofoam recycling (in the upstairs cloakroom). No other recyclable materials (such as other plastics, paper, or glass) should be deposited in this container. Other recyclable materials go in the blue recycling containers, or any container marked just “Recycling.”
Thank you to those of you who are recycling Styrofoam by putting it in the Styrofoam recycling containers. Please make sure any Styrofoam containers you put in are completely clean and free of any food residue. Styrofoam that is contaminated with food residue or anything else won’t be recycled. Almost all of the Styrofoam that has been put in so far has been nice and clean. Good job, folks, and keep it up! Care of the Earth Committee of the Peace and Justice Mission
