All: You are worthy, our Lord and God, To receive glory and honor and power, For you created all things!

One: Let us embrace the wealth wisdom and might and glory and blessings that have been provided to us.

+Hymn UMH No. 140 Great Is Thy Faithfulness


Congregational Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann

All: In the deepness of winter, O God, remind us that the bleakness will not hold. Spring is not a myth or false hope, but it is the endurance of faith, year after year, that deep in the frozen ground seeds will soon flourish, bulbs are ready to produce. In the high days of summer, O God, remind us to cherish each moment of warmth in the beauty of Your creation. We know that the constant of our tilted planet is for seasons to always change, to always bring us something new, whether challenges or blessings, hopes or trials. You are with us, Your love enduring with us, and You will see us through. Amen.


The Pastoral Prayer Rev. Sarah Steidtmann

What is Your Strength? Join us on Jan. 23rd at 6:30 p.m. and find out.

Have you ever wondered what your strength is? You may think you know but sometimes things that are strengths go unnoticed or underused. Would you like to learn from your strengths? If so join me for a Zoom meeting to talk about the Strengthsfinder assessment and the book Living Your Strengths: Discover Your God-Given Talents and Inspire Your Community on Jan. 23rd at 6:30 p.m.


I will have copies of the book for sale in my office for $20.00 you will need an unused copy of the book because it has a code for the assessment. We learned from the Ad. Council taking the assessment that the Kindle version of the book does not provide a digital code for the assessment.


Before the meeting please take the assessment (code for assessment in the book) and read the first three chapters of the book. Please register for the zoom meeting at https://bit.ly/crfumcstrengths
