Good morning New Street Family,
Join us this morning online since in-person worship is canceled due to inclement weather. You can even sleep in and watch it anytime after 10am too! Enjoy.
Pastor Dee-Ann reveals how Jesus was baptized through the Holy Spirit. As usual, the New Street UMC Chancel Choir regales us with a medley which includes "Down to the River to Pray'' with the visual backdrop of her at the actual site of Jesus' baptism on the Jordan River during her Holy Land Tour in February 2020.
“When everyone was being baptized, Jesus also was baptized. While he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit came down on him in bodily form like a dove. And there was a voice from heaven, ‘You are my Son, whom I dearly love; in you I find happiness.’” Luke 3:21-22 (CEB)
Glorious God, we rejoice in your presence on this holy day. Reveal your presence to us in word and sacrament, in fellowship and worship. Speak words of life, that we may sense your Spirit breathing new life into us each and every day. Speak your words of love, that we may rest in the knowledge that we are your beloved children. In your holy name, we pray. Amen.
Go to love one another, for you are beloved. God to honor one another, for you are honored. Go to share life with one another, for you have been given life. Go with the power of God, whose Spirit is always with us and always guiding us. Amen.
