[news] This Week At Old South Haven Presbyterian Church.doc

                This Week At Old South Haven Presbyterian Church


Sunday, Jan. 8      10:00am             Morning Worship

                                                 Baptism of the Lord Sunday

                                  Sermon: ”Some Issues Regarding Baptism”

                                  Lessons: Mark 1: 4-11; Acts 19: 1-7

                                  Special Music:   J.S. Bach’s   “Partita”

                                  Guest soloist:  Natasha Bertrand, flutist

   The focus each year on the 2nd Sunday of January is on the Baptism of the Lord taking place just prior to Jesus commencing his ministry. Pastor Tom this Sunday, however, will focus on the story in Acts when “certain disciples” received  “the baptism of the Spirit” which for some today is a warrant for a second baptism. This has led to a controversy through the centuries over second baptisms.


The 12 Days of Christmas ended we will take down the Christmas tree and decorations after Morning Worship
