Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas (12/17/17)

My dad, as everyone remembers him.

This Sunday we examined a passage from Isaiah, in the light of grief and loss around the holidays, and how we are called to respond to the darkness around us.

A Voice Cries Out! (12/10/17)

Maverick is the son of Chris and Becca Reeb.
On Sunday, December 10th, we welcomed Maverick Aiden Reeb into his new family at Rehoboth Presbyterian Church. Our lesson came from the beginning of the Gospel of Mark: John the Baptist announcing the coming of the Christ. This was also a perfect text for a baptism.

Keep Awake (12/3/17)

On Sunday, December 3rd, we celebrated the first Sunday of Advent and the sacrament of baptism, as we welcomed Elizabeth Shannon King into the beloved family of God. We also heard an apocalyptic story from the Gospel of Mark. On the surface, that seems like an odd combination, but it isn't.
