THIS WEEK AT AIC

Dear <<First Name>>, 

Last week, we contemplated how we "stay salty" with prayer and gratitude to be salt of the earth. This week, we turn to Jesus' call to be "light for the world."

I am reminded of that Debby Boone song from the 1970's, "You Light Up My Life." Whether you think it's romantic, cheesy or just old, the song reminds us that certain people radiate energy and joy just by being present in our lives. When Jesus calls us to be the light of the world, it's an invitation to light up the lives of others with love.

How do we do that? How do we become that? Is it the same as being happy all the time? Does it mean darkness is bad? (Spoiler: NO and NO.) If you are looking for light in your life and want to be light to others, tune in to worship this Sunday.

Faithfully,
Pastor Jennifer

WORSHIP

Sunday Worship for 31 January will premiere on YouTube and Facebook at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, and be available anytime after. Pastor Jennifer will bring a message about being light for the world, and Joanna Davies will bring the music.

Sunday Evening Zoom Worship

This informal, half-hour service focuses on connection, community and communion. We will reflect and pray together on a scripture, then share communion. Bring wine, juice or water, and bread or cracker for communion.
