Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! Happy New Year! I write this freshly back from a jaunt to the southern commonwealth, Massachusetts, from which I return very happy to be home in Blue Hill and looking forward to tonight’s festivities around town. Then, tomorrow morning, we continue our celebration with our somewhat early celebration of Epiphany, with the story of the “wise men’s” arrival to pay homage to the Christ child. We also will remember Jesus’ gifts to us by recalling his last supper with the disciples in our sacrament of Communion. This will be an energetic morning when we can ring in the new year together!
Blessings and peace, Lisa
Worship at Home Materials: We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday. Coffee & tea are available after the church service. We ask that if you have not yet been vaccinated you attend worship via Zoom. Masks are required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.
Below you will find materials to accompany this week’s Sunday Morning Worship via Zoom. An order of service with scripture readings, to accompany the service, are available by clicking the following links.
A Reading from the Hebrew Scriptures Isaiah 60:1-6
A Reading from The New Testament Matthew 2:1-12

Helpful Hint: If you are planning to join the Sunday morning worship Zoom call, you might wish to print the following documents prior to joining the call, if you have that capability.
