Trinity Lutheran – Richard Sturgeon

Baptism of Our Lord. January 13, 2019. The Baptism of our Lord cannot help but recall our own and all baptismal blessings. We recall and celebrate our adoption as daughters and sons. The gift of the Holy Spirit, and the promised company of almighty God when we “pass through the waters… the rivers…fire.” On this day the heavens open again for this assembly, and we receive the gift of the beloved Son of God in bread and wine.

Preparation for worship 

As Jesus’ baptism inaugurated his ministry, may we who are baptized or preparing for baptism also minister by whatever means you direct, Lord.

Beloved children of God: Welcome to Trinity Lutheran Church as we worship in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Happy Birthday to Tory Rutledge-Mooney, born on January 14th.
