Weekly Bulletin - January 9, 2022

This Sunday we remember the baptism of Jesus as well as our own.



Baptism of the Lord Sunday



Scripture Reading: Luke 3:15-22

Sermon: “Original Blessing"


Reverend Melissa Boyer, Minister

Peter Muir, Guest Musician


Worship will continue to be offered over Zoom and Facebook Live as well as in person at Katonah UMC. (Worship is at Purdys UMC on the first Sunday of each month.)



Here's what to expect when you come to worship in person:

  1. Masks are required at all times. Congregational singing is suspended for now, but soloists or a small choir may sing while masked.

  2. We will continue to have hand sanitizer stationed at entrances.

  3. We will continue using individually packaged cup-and-wafer servings for communion. You are also still welcome to bring your own bread and juice from home.

  4. The offering plate will remain at the back of the sanctuary for now, rather than being passed around.

  5. Passing of the peace during worship is still suspended.
