Dear Ford St. Friends,
Well, what Star Word did you receive? Mine is “Priority.” This is definitely a challenging one for me as I continue to navigate ministry, motherhood, and life balance! Some of you have expressed that your word is challenging to you, or not one you ever would have chosen for yourself. Exactly! This is where the power of the Star Word lies…in that it is meant to help challenge, shape, guide, and engage you throughout the year. Keep in mind that I’ll be asking at some point how it’s going with your word…and I hope it will continue to grow on you!
This Sunday, we will celebrate and remember the Baptism of Jesus. We will also celebrate and remember OUR baptisms. When were you baptized? How did it happen? Or maybe you have not ever been baptized, and are wondering about this possibility. Do you understand the meaning and significance of our baptisms then and now? We will explore all of these thoughts and questions together this Sunday as we explore what it means to be “Water Marked” people. There will be an opportunity to come forward and remember your baptism and be thankful.
I am also celebrating this week that our Sunday school programs and small groups continue to thrive! Don’t forget to check out our classes for all ages each Sunday, and don’t hesitate to ask if you have questions.
Thanks for being a part of Ford St Church!
Rev. Jill Moffett
