A New Year’s Prayer

Lord, You make all things new

You bring hope alive in our hearts

And cause our Spirits to be born again.

 

Thank you for this new year

For all the potential it holds

Come and kindle in us

A mighty flame

So that in our time, many will see the wonders of

God

And live forever to praise Your glorious name.

Amen

Announcements

We continue to invite everyone to prayerfully consider how we can support our church financially in order to do the important ministry of the church.  Pledge cards are available at the back of the church or can be mailed to you.

Sign-up Sheets for Sunday ministriesThere are new sign up sheets located on the table next to the kitchen in Aspinwall Hall.  Please sign up to read a lesson, lead Prayers of the People, host Coffee Hour, provide treats for Coffee Hour and/or arrange flowers for worship.  All are welcome to be part of these important ministries that make our Sunday morning worship a spiritual experience for all.

Altar Servers– For anyone who would like to be trained to serve at the altar during the Sunday worship services, please contact the Vicar (mwilliams@bard.edu).  I encourage anyone who feels called to this special ministry to consider signing up.  We hope to have several Altar Servers so your commitment would be approximately one Sunday a month.  Training sessions will be held.
