This Weekend in Worship
Baptism of Our Lord Sunday
Preaching: Pastor Craig Brown
Sermon: "Light on Baptism Promise"
Sermon Synopsis: In the waters of the Jordan, Jesus is revealed as the beloved Son of God. Through this great epiphany, Jesus fulfills all righteousness and becomes the servant of God who will bring forth justice and be a light to the nations. In the waters of baptism we too are washed by the Word, anointed by the Spirit, and named God’s beloved children. Our baptismal mission is to proclaim good news to all who are oppressed or in need of God’s healing.
Scriptures: Acts 10:34-43; Matthew 3:13-17 NRSV
