WTUC Weekly Announcement for Sunday, January 22nd
This Sunday (Jan 22), our own Jonathan Blanke will preaching. The Rev. Blanke’s text will be Mark 1:14-20 and title is “Back to the Beginning,” reflecting on Jesus ministry in Galilee. Jonathan is faculty at Japan Lutheran College and Japan Lutheran Theological Seminary. While some of the women are away at Women’s Conference, we will be worshipping at the same 11:00 hour with you all in heart and mind (the WTUC start is officially 10:55—close enough).
Next Sunday we have the unexpected joy of hearing the Rev. Tom Hastings. Tom is no stranger to the congregation having spent 23 year in Japan as a mission co-worker (along with his wife Carol, who is unfortunately not coming on this trip), and also at teaching at Tokyo Union Theological Seminary. Tom will be preaching “God Incognito” with the following texts: Colossians 1:11-20, Luke 23:33-43.
Following Worship on the 29th, there will be Congregational Meeting to approve a 6 month budget. The shorter budget is in order to align the fiscal year with the church’s program year. That way our financial planning will more easily coordinate with our program planning.
Also on the 29th, a Steering Committee meeting will follow the Congregational Meeting.
