  DURING COLD AND FLU SEASON — Out of consideration to others, you are invited to put your hand over your heart during the Passing of the Peace and Sung Blessing if you are unwell. In this way, you can still warmly greet those around you and prevent the spreading of cold and influenza viruses to others.

COMPASS is a group from Webster Church that meets on Monday evenings year-round to explore topics of faith. The group is open to both guests and new participants. Each week a different person hosts the gathering in their home. This Monday, Jan. 22 the group will discuss Martin Luther King Jr.’s letter from the Birmingham City jail.

ANNUAL REPORT—All officers and committees should have turned in their annual report. The reports will be compiled into the church’s annual report for presentation at the annual meeting on January 28. The report will be mailed electronically; a limited number of printed copies will be available at the meeting. 

SPOTLIGHT ON FAITH meets on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. The study passage for Jan. 24 is Mark 1:21-28; this is the Gospel reading for Sunday, Jan. 28.
