THE 3RD SUNDAY AFTER EPIPHANY
23 January 2022
Welcome! We extend a warm welcome to our guests, and invite you to sign the guest book at the back of the sanctuary. Unfortunately, however, we are not yet able to resume our after-service fellowship time in the Church Hall.
Online Services – An abbreviated version of the service is recorded each Sunday, and uploaded to YouTube. If you would like to receive the link to the recorded service each week — or even just occasionally — please let John know. The link to the weekly service can also be accessed on website. Each service is saved for two weeks, and then deleted.
This Week in First Church:
– Tuesday, 7:00 p.m. – Bible study – by Zoom
– Wednesday, 1:30 p.m. – Soup Kitchen Committee meeting – Church Hall

Comfort Dolls – A shipment of 31 comfort dolls and 12 baby caps was sent to the Compassionate Resource Warehouse at the end of 2021. Many thanks to those who contributed them, and also to Debbi Miles, who looked after sending them off!
Weekly Prayer Focus – At its meeting this Thursday evening, the Session will choose the “Weekly Prayer Focus” for the coming year — a situation or issue that we will pray for in the Prayers of the People every Sunday. This year’s Weekly Prayer Focus has been “people in positions of authority”. The Session welcomes suggestions. If you have one, please speak to one of the Session members, or to John.
