Human Relations Day

Sunday, January 14, 2024


There are many today who are living in the margins of society, those struggling to survive. Over and over Jesus served people like this. To continue the ministry of Jesus, Human Relations Day calls all of us to participate in helping all God’s children to realize their potential through faith-based volunteer programs, community developers, and programs that work with at-risk teens.

Offering envelopes are available at the entrance to the sanctuary and at the Welcome

Center. Give your gift any time during January or February with your personal check or by electronic giving designating an amount for Human Relations Day.

January Food Collection for Spark's Food Cupboard

Dear Church Members,

Throughout January, Spark's Food Cupboard will collect essential food items to support the Hamburg community. Your contributions make a significant impact on those who rely on this assistance.


Items to Purchase:

  • Canned fruit (any type, preferably flip-top cans)

A designated basket labeled "SPARKS" will be placed in the Gathering Space for your convenience. Kindly place your donated food items in this basket and refrain from placing them directly in the cupboard outside Sparks. This arrangement will help manage the food inventory.


Your generosity and support are deeply appreciated. Let's come together to make a difference!

Thank you, Wendy and Dave Spaulding


 

 

The Church office is glad to announce that services going forward will be streamed via YouTube Live, in addition to the current Facebook Live services. You can access the Youtube live stream on our Youtube Channel, or directly on our church website homepage.

ANNOUNCEMENTS CALL TO WORSHIP 

Leader 1: Be Careful

Leader 2: Watch out! Leader 1: You might get a bad reputation coming to church with us. Leader 2: If you haven’t noticed, Jesus is known for keeping bad company. Leader 1: Jesus was always eating and drinking with tax collectors and sinners. Leader 2: Jesus even called Levi, one of Rome’s tax collectors, and ranked him among the twelve apostles. Leader 1: You didn’t really expect to find this church full of saints did you?

Leader 2: Look around you. Every member of this church has confessed to being a sinner. Leader 1: So be careful!

Leader 2: Jesus came to call not the righteous, but sinners. Jesus, we have heard you call us to this place today. Our reputations are already smeared with our sin. We fit in here, with the rest of the sinners. We have come, so that you could set us back onto the narrow path of life.

OPENING MUSIC: “Shall we Gather at the River” #723 UMH


OPENING PRAYER: God of power and wonder,  we are awestruck by the glory of your presence. We rejoice at what we can see; we marvel at what we cannot see.

You dazzle us with your brightness; you overshadow us as with a great cloud. Loving, protecting, challenging, nurturing, you strengthen and transform us. May we love and serve you in all that we are and do. Glory be to you. Amen
