January 17, 2021, 2nd Sunday after Epiphany

Good morning… and welcome to worship.

**Important announcement for our members:

The Annual Meeting for our congregation is scheduled for Sunday, January 31st at 11:00am. Because of the pandemic, we will meet virtually via zoom. We, therefore, need voting members who wish to participate to call the church office and register for the meeting by next Sunday, January 24th. The zoom link (for phone and computer / laptop) and other meeting details will be provided only to those who register.

Annual Reports are available now to be picked up.

Today we are reminded, in our readings, that all the baptized have a calling in God’s world – to bring God’s word to those who need to hear it… to bring / point others to Jesus… to invite them to “come and see”…


God calls not just pastors and deacons.

God calls children / youth like Samuel…

God calls skeptics and scoffers like Nathanael…

God calls ordinary people… from all sorts of places – even Nazareth… even Baraboo…


“Come and see”… Be the light of Christ!

Scripture Readings:

1 Samuel 3:1-10, Psalm 139: 1-6, 13-18; 1 Corinthians 6:12-20; John 1:43-51

Thank you to Susan Lappin for providing the music for our service today.

Thank you to Paul Kropp for providing the altar flowers for worship this week – in loving memory of his wife, Diane.


A bulletin and a copy of the sermon are available for you to download and print for worship.

In Christ,


Pastor Karen
