The Exorcist-Sunday, 29 January, 2012

Thanks for checking us out again! We hope that you will join us in person. You are always welcome in God’s house…no matter what you have done or left undone…what you have said or left unsaid…who you are or who you aren’t…you are welcome. This is God’s house. This week, we’ll be taking a look at Deuteronomy 18:15-20 and Mark 1:21-28. We’ll be talking about demons…those that Jesus cast out “then and there,” and those that are in our lives “here and now.” We don’t talk about demons much in this area…but this week we are touching the untouchable. And we promise that it will be relevant to you and your life. That’s what faith and church are all about…making God and Scripture relevent to our lives here and now. It’s about a relationship with God. Come join us as we figure out how to have a better relationship with God…there’s room enough here for you.

Worship Fun Fact! We are now in the church season of “Ordinary Time” called “The Season After Epiphany.” This season lasts between 4 and 9 weeks, depending on when Easter comes. It stands between the 2 big church cycles of the year: Advent-Christmas, and Lent-Easter-Epiphany. It has no central theme.
